Tell the NC Utilities Commission: Reject Duke's Bad Carbon Plan!

Duke Energy has been in the headlines lately for all the wrong reasons: skyrocketing power bills, blackouts causing problems -- and now Duke Energy wants authorization to triple the amount of expensive and dirty gas in the company's future power plans. If approved, the company's latest Carbon Plan proposal would line Duke's pockets by putting ratepayers on the hook to pay for expensive, unnecessary gas plants that threaten our health and our climate.

The good news is that the NC Utilities Commission (NCUC) can reject Duke's gas plans and instead direct the company to follow a Carbon Plan centered on more affordable, safe and reliable clean energy. Can you sign our petition urging the NCUC to reject Duke's Carbon Plan?

More gas is a bad idea. Duke Energy admits that volatile gas prices are a big reason for increasing energy rates, and investigations conducted after 2022's disastrous Winter Storm Elliott showed that gas failed far more than any other energy source. What's more, gas-powered electricity emits methane, a greenhouse gas more potent than CO2. Duke's plan to triple-down on this dangerous fossil fuel is irresponsible when we have clean, stable, affordable alternatives like wind, solar and reliable energy storage technologies.

North Carolina law requires NCUC to approve a Carbon Plan that will significantly reduce carbon emissions from energy generation. This process is an opportunity to reshape North Carolina's energy future and protect the health of all North Carolinians. Join us in telling the NCUC to reject Duke's gas-filled Carbon Plan today!

We, the undersigned, urge the NC Utilities Commission to reject Duke Energy's Carbon Plan proposal and instead direct the utility to implement a plan that emphasizes clean energy generation to keep energy costs reliable and affordable while meeting the state's carbon reduction goals. The Utilities Commission should approve a Carbon Plan that prioritizes reliable, affordable clean energy that meets the state's carbon reduction goals like solar, wind, and energy storage technologies.
