Keeping Our Meter Readers Safe
Duke Energy makes a concentrated effort to ensure our employees stay safe. Dog bites are one of the leading causes of injury to our meter readers. That's why we train our employees on how to prevent dog attacks.
We all love our pets and want to keep them safe, but even the nicest dogs can be aggressive when a stranger comes onto its owner's property. You can help Duke Energy keep our employees – and your pet – safe by containing your dog away from the meter on reading days, or when work is scheduled on your property. To find out when your next meter reading will be, look at your bill under "Account Information." Please note that while meters are normally read on the date listed, on occasion they may be read one working day before or after that date.
Thank you for helping us deliver safe, reliable energy to your home.
