Right-of-Way Information

Duke Energy owns and operates an extensive network of electric transmission and distribution lines, as well as natural gas operations including transmission pipelines and storage capacity. Providing safe and reliable electricity and gas requires unobstructed access for maintaining power lines, pipelines, facilities and rights of way.

Vegetation growth such as trees and overgrown shrubbery can pose a threat to Duke Energy equipment, as well as public safety. Duke Energy uses a variety of environmentally responsible and cost-effective methods to monitor and manage vegetation growth on rights of way. Managing all activities through plan reviews and encroachment removals is another way Duke Energy protects its rights of way and provides safe and reliable electricity.
