Duke Energy Carolinas & Progress Expert Witness Hearing

Aug 24, 2:00 PM
Duke Energy Carolinas (DEC) and Duke Energy Progress (DEP) consolidated virtual expert witness hearing

Rate cases for both Duke Energy Carolinas (DEC) and Duke Energy Progress (DEP) are currently underway, with Duke seeking to recover costs associated with coal ash cleanup, upgrades to their fracked gas infrastructure and costly “grid modernization,” with no clear benefits to customers or cleaner energy. Impacts of the proposed rates would hit hard, as DEC wants to raise electric rates by at least 6.7%–increasing annual electricity bills for an average customer by over $100, while DEP is proposing to raise rates by at least 14.3%, adding over $200 annually to an average electric bill.

This virtual hearing is solely to receive testimony from intervening parties in the current DEC and DEP rate hike, no public comment period will be included.

Members of the public are welcome to tune in, and a like to the WebX hearing will be posted on www.ncuc.net
