No Rate Hikes for Dirty Energy!
Duke Energy wants big money with little transparency. Duke is asking the Utilities Commission for an increase in cash flow to fund unspecified projects. Yet, they don't explain how their multi-billion dollar grid investment will save ratepayers money or speed up clean energy adoption. Rather than spend their money on unknown projects, Duke should be investing in more clean energy options instead of dirty fossil fuels.
As the largest public utility corporation in the country, Duke should invest in clean energy and pay for their own bad business practices, not ratepayers.

We, the undersigned, urge the Utilities Commission to reject Duke Energy's request to increase rates on North Carolina ratepayers. If approved, these rate increases will unfairly burden older residents on fixed incomes, community members who are already struggling to make ends meet, and small businesses. The company's proposal lacks clarity and transparency, and clears a path to future rate increases with little oversight. Duke Energy has failed to justify the need for this rate increase and has not demonstrated how their multi-billion grid investment will save ratepayers money or speed up clean energy adoption. Ratepayers should not cover the cost of Duke Energy's outdated dirty energy investments. The Utilities Commission should reject this proposal.
