One more chance to speak out against rate hikes for dirty energy

Tuesday, January 30, Charlotte
Charlotte Public Hearing, Mecklenburg County Courthouse, 832 E. 4th Street (directions)
Press conference at 6PM; Hearing begins at 6:30PM

Organizers are also planning a vigil at Duke Energy Headquarters at 5PM; then, vigil attendees will march to the courthouse. For more information, view the Facebook event.

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!
