About Duke Energy

Duke Energy, one of the largest energy providers in America, has turned its focus from providing affordable energy to its customers to prioritizing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) objectives and pushing a political agenda. At Duke Energy, they tie incentive pay directly to an executives’ ability to meet their climate goals, even when that means higher costs for consumers. The result has been an increase in pay for the company’s top brass, while its customers are stuck paying more.

Duke Energy has not shied away from weighing in on issues completely unrelated to energy like sponsoring a “youth pride carnival” featuring a “king and queen” drag show or focusing on hiring based on the color of an applicant’s skin. They know they’re the only show in town so they expect you to deal with it. It’s time to make your voice heard!
