Duke Energy is pushing a deceptive bill in our state legislature that would allow it to raise your electric rates more easily with virtually no public input or regulatory oversight.
Tell your state senator TODAY to vote “no” on Senate Bill 559!
The bill would allow electric monopolies like Duke to circumvent regulatory review to get a single approval for up to five years of automatic rate hikes — raising everyone’s electric bill — for investments like Duke’s flawed $13 billion grid “modernization” scheme. The bill could also put ratepayers on the hook for coal ash cleanup costs, all with little transparency or accountability.
The N.C. Senate could vote on this bill this week. Take these two easy steps to quickly send a comment to your legislator TODAY!
