Duke Energy hopes to increase energy rates by 17.9% over the next three years such that by 2026, the average annual residential electric bill would be about $240 higher than it is today. To share your story and prevent this energy rate increase, you can give testimony to the NC Utilities Commission at a public hearing in Durham on August, 14.
Sunrise Durham, People Power NC, and other community organizations are organizing a teach-in workshop on Thursday, August 10 from 6-8 PM at the Center for Responsible Lending to help you learn about the increases and prepare for the hearing on the 14th. Participants will walk through the energy rate increases and work on public statements together in preparation for the hearing.
