Duke Energy's board of directors today announced the appointment of Annette Clayton – CEO and president of North America Operations for French multinational corporation Schneider Electric – as a new board member, effective Jan. 7, 2019.
As new electric vehicles (EV) enter the market and strong sales growth continues nationwide, Duke Energy has proposed an electric transportation (ET) pilot program that will allow South Carolina to join other states in deploying EV infrastructure to meet the needs of this growing market.
The proposed Green Source Advantage program will provide large nonresidential customers the option to secure significant amounts of solar or other renewable energy to satisfy their sustainability or other clean energy goals.
For 33 years, Duke Energy has partnered with employees and customers to lend a hand to those struggling to pay their energy bills. The company is reinforcing that commitment with an additional $600,000 contribution to its Share the Warmth program to help South Carolina customers pay their high seasonal energy bills.
The Duke Energy Foundation recently awarded nearly $300,000 in grants to 11 South Carolina organizations that impact communities served by Duke Energy through nonprofit capacity-building efforts, expanding access to arts and culture, and other strategic community initiatives.
Duke Energy has received the 2018 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest honor the U.S. Department of Defense gives to companies for their outstanding support for employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve. Duke Energy was one of only 15 companies nationwide to be selected out of more than 2,300 nominations.
