Stand Up Against Duke Energy Rate Hikes

Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (Duke) Request to Increase Rates for Electric Service (Docket No. E-7 Sub 1146)

Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (Duke), serves about 2 million retail electric customers in North Carolina. On August 25, 2017, Duke filed an application with the Commission requesting authority to increase its rates to produce additional annual North Carolina retail revenues of about $611 million. Duke seeks approval of a rate of return on common equity of 10.75%. For an existing residential customer who uses 1,000 kilowatt-hours of power monthly, Duke’s proposed rates would increase the monthly bill from $103.96 to $122.68, an 18% increase.

The primary reason for Duke’s enormous rate hike is to force working families to foot the bill to clean up its criminal coal ash disasters that took decades in the making. NC Green Party is calling for the people of NC to come together and organize at the community and beyond to resist and ultimately replace Duke Energy and the politicians who serve Duke’s interests.

Join us for a Rally in front of Duke Energy Headquarters followed by a march to the hearing at Courthouse 6350 (Mecklenburg County Courthouse) to speak out against the proposed rate hikes!
