Duke Energy Rate Hike Hearing in Charlotte

June 26, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


N.C. Utilities Commission public hearing on the rate hike requested by Duke Energy.

Duke Energy is rigging rates to force you to pay for climate-wrecking power plants we don’t even need. The company creates demand for electricity by attracting data centers and other large users to North Carolina by offering dirt-cheap rates. The cost of building these new power plants is shifted onto smaller customers. Residential rates will increase an average of 13.9% if Duke gets its way, and rates for small to medium-sized businesses will go up as much as 10.7%.

Come out and make your voice heard!
