A modernized generating fleet and additional investments of $11 billion in cleaner energy are spurring Duke Energy to establish an aggressive carbon dioxide reduction goal: 40 percent from 2005 levels by 2030. The goals are spelled out in the company's 2016 Sustainability Report, which was issued today.
A new survey of utility customers nationwide has named Piedmont Natural Gas a Top Utility Environmental Champion of 2017 for initiatives such as slashing emissions in its vehicle fleet and making its facilities more energy efficient.
Duke Energy customers are expected to use more energy to heat their homes – and see higher heating bills – this winter compared to one year ago. That's according to the company's winter heating forecast for the Greater Cincinnati region.
Piedmont Natural Gas said today it is experiencing tremendous growth in demand for compressed natural gas (CNG) from commercial vehicle fleets and highlighted several initiatives that will give more companies greater access to the cleaner, lower-cost fuel option.
Piedmont Natural Gas today advised customers that Piedmont crews will be canvassing neighborhoods in flood impacted areas to inspect natural gas meters for signs of submersion from flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew. Any meter believed to have been submerged will be removed and natural gas service to the home or business will be turned off.
