Duke Energy announced that it has disconnected Chinese-manufactured batteries from Camp Lejeune after lawmakers raised concerns to the Pentagon about security.

Duke Energy told Military.com that it disconnected the lithium batteries produced by the company CATL from the North Carolina installation’s energy infrastructure after “some concerns about this project” were raised.

Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (CATL), a company directly funded and supported by the Chinese Communist Party, continues to pose national security risks to the United States. This past spring, CATL batteries were installed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican, wrote.

Rubio and other senators sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, demanding the U.S. Department of Defense immediately reverse the decision to install CATL batteries at Camp Lejeune. The letter called for a full assessment of whether CATL systems have been installed at other U.S. military bases.

    • Along with the batteries comes all the support eqipment, including cameras and recording devices. The CCCP is then allowed to spy on our military. Proud MAGA member here,

  1. This is almost as bad as a spy balloon flying over the entire country, or selling off our strategic petroleum reserve, or selling our farmland, or selling land next to military bases, or…

  2. TAA Compliant? Our government has process and policy to prevent this, its run by clowns, many of them GS, WG, GG civilians. Politicians it goes without saying, incompetent, evil buffoons. You get what you vote for. In Alaskas case, Murky and Solddowntheriver.

  3. Many of the grid scale “green” or “renewable” technologies installed in the US have Chinese origin, many of the grid scale batteries are also of Chinese origin. Frequently decisions are made that allow the cheap subsidized products of the CCP to be purchased over American or at least friendly country of origin products, while the upfront cost m8ght be lower the long term cost is far greater.
