PremierNotes® investments pay a competitive floating rate of interest that is determined at the direction of the Duke Energy PremierNotes Committee on a weekly basis, with rates effective each Monday. Rates will always be at least 0.25 percent greater than the average rate of taxable U.S. money-market mutual funds, as published weekly in Money Fund Report®, a service of iMoneyNet, Inc.
Yield reflects the annual rate of return on your investment. It assumes that interest is accrued daily and posted monthly, and that there are no additional investments or redemptions.

Interest is compounded daily and posted to your investment monthly.

An investment in PremierNotes allows individuals and institutions to benefit from the financial strength of Duke Energy Corporation. PremierNotes are not money market accounts, which are typically diversified funds consisting of short-term debt securities of many issuers, and therefore do not meet the diversification and investment quality standards set forth for money market funds by the Investment Company Act of 1940. Instead, PremierNotes are variable denomination, floating rate demand notes that are unsecured debt obligations of Duke Energy Corporation and are backed only by the assets of Duke Energy Corporation. Your investment in PremierNotes is not equivalent to a deposit or other bank account and is not guaranteed, insured, or subject to the protection of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
