NC - Asheville Duke Energy Rate Hike Hearing

Mothers and allies are gathering on Thursday, March 12th at 7PM to attend the Duke Energy Rate Hike Hearing in Asheville, NC.

Now is a great time to support 2 mothers as they testify to stop a rate hike that is only meant to subsidize coal ash clean up and invest in more polluting dirty gas infrastructure. Showing up makes a tremendous difference!

Here's what they'll be addressing: from our friends at the North Carolina Energy Justice Coalition

  • Duke wants to use this rate case to increase profits for investors
  • Duke is increasing rates on households by NEARLY 10% for most residents!
  • Duke is using this rate case to recover costs associated with problems they created from investing in dirty energy, like coal ash clean up and storm recovery.
  • Duke Energy wants to raise rates while failing to provide customers clean energy alternatives that residents and communities are demanding to address the climate crisis and local health impacts. 
  • Duke wants to charge ratepayers for its lobbying, and payments to trade groups that engage in political activities, including anti-environmental activities.
  • Duke is pushing to recover costs for actions related to its so-called Grid Improvement Plan, which includes billions in questionable expenses that don’t directly advance clean energy investments.
