Tell Duke Energy you’re tired of them pretending to be green. Tell them to leave coal in the past and join us in the 21st century! http://sc.org/DarkAgeDuke

- In North Carolina and Indiana, Duke is not shifting beyond coal and instead plans to burn coal until as late as 2048.

- In Indiana, Duke is moving too slowly on renewable energy instead of leading the way.

- In Florida, Duke is actively blocking solar.

- In 2015, Duke was placed on five years of probation for environmental crimes and paid a $102 million fine for violations of the federal Clean Water Act.

- Duke is appealing North Carolina’s order to clean up its toxic coal ash.

Mecklenburg County, NC, where Duke is headquartered, continues to rank at the bottom in the American Lung Association’s annual air quality report.

The City of Charlotte has committed to a clean energy future, and it would help that goal and the region’s air quality for Duke Energy to retire the polluting, 62-year-old Allen Steam Station in neighboring Gaston County.
