Supreme Court supports Atlantic Coast Pipeline a STAFF REPORT In a win for Eastern North Carolina jobs, economic development and clean energy, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a longstanding precedent al- lowing the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to cross beneath the Appalachian Trail — like more than 50 other pipelines already do without disturbing its public use. While this is an exciting outcome, there is still some work to do in resolving several remaining project permits before construction can resume. "e Court's decision is an affirma- tion for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and communities across our region that are depending on it for jobs, eco- nomic growth and clean energy," said Tammy urman, Piedmont spokes- person. "e project will provide a much-needed source of natural gas to North Carolina, bringing with it economic opportunities in an under- served part of our state. Eastern North Carolina's energy needs and pros- pects for economic success continue to be very important to us." When in service, here's what the ACP means for your region and the state: • With access to a plentiful sup- ply of affordable natural gas, the ACP will help to attract, compete for and win new manufacturers and industry in your counties. • With current infrastructure constrained, the ACP provides a direct new supply of natural gas that will bring enhanced capacity and pressure to east- ern North Carolina — some- thing industry and businesses need to operate. • Construction of the ACP would create more than 17,000 good-paying jobs and $2.7 bil- lion in economic activity along the pipeline's three-state route. • Job positions start at $20-$25 per hour and include free training, veteran's programs and other benefits, such as health insurance and retire- ment plans. • e ACP will increase local spending, provide additional tax revenues and offer pros- pects for a better quality of life in your communities for many years to come. • e ACP will play an impor- tant role in the transition away from coal plants to cleaner natural gas and renewables, a critical part of our compre- hensive climate and net-zero emissions strategy. • e ACP serves the strategic interests of our armed forces in North Carolina, strengthening resilient energy supplies for military readiness and national security and reducing the cost to maintain our military forces. • e ACP will reduce price vol- atility for all customers when natural gas demand is high during cold winter months. The Supreme Court ruling is en- couraging, and Piedmont Natural Gas appreciates everyone who has voiced support for the project. Eastern North Carolina's energy needs continue to be very impor- tant to us, and the organization pledges to continue to help the region's prospects for growth and economic success.
