Why Does Duke Energy Hate Solar?

Solar power helps everyone by eliminating the need for new power plants and Duke Energy’s ongoing rate hikes, while creating thousands of North Carolina jobs.

But rooftop and large-scale solar reduce Duke Energy’s profits from dirty power plants. So Duke is trying to stop paying a fair price to solar-generating customers who contribute clean power to the electric grid.

The messaging in NC WARN’s first round of ads accusing Duke Energy of trying to kill solar in NC rang true and was proved during the initial stages of hearings held at the Utilities Commission in July. See below for more information on our hard-hitting legal and media campaign.
