Background: Duke Energy Carolinas is seeking approval from the North Carolina Utilities Commission of a $647 million increase, raising residential electric rates by 16.7% or about $18.72 per month for a typical residential customer. Residential rates will go up more than industrial or commercial rates, putting the burden on North Carolina families. Duke wants its customers to pay for coal ash cleanup, construction of new fracked gas plants, and investments in a nuclear project in South Carolina that has been canceled!
