Help Stop Duke Energy’s ratepayer ripoff

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

couple surprised by high energy billDuke Energy is pushing a deceptive bill in our state legislature that would allow it to raise your electric rates more easily, with fewer public hearings and less oversight by the North Carolina Utilities Commission.

Senate Bill 559 circumvents regulatory review and allows electric monopolies like Duke Energy to get a single approval for up to five years of automatic rate hikes for investments like its flawed $13 billion grid “modernization” scheme. It could also put ratepayers on the hook for coal ash cleanup costs, all with little transparency or accountability.

Senate Bill 559 would reduce accountability and oversight of Duke Energy’s spending, and give them an endless line of credit paid for by customers like you.

Contact your legislators today and tell them they must vote NO on Senate Bill 559.
