Reliable power

Making sure that the power is there when you need it is our Job One.

That means being able to generate power in a number of ways – nuclear, coal, natural gas, hydroelectric and renewable energy.

It means keeping our plants in top condition and replacing them when they’re no longer efficient.

It means delivering electricity over a well-maintained system of wires and poles – so getting the power you need is as easy as flipping a switch. In addition to routine maintenance, the company spends millions of dollars annually in reliability improvements, including new substations, equipment replacements and upgrades.

Duke Energy Carolinas’ reliability ranks among the best in the region: our customers average one outage per year and the power is on 99.97 percent of the time. Bottom line – our customers have fewer and shorter outages than most other utilities in the region. And we plan to keep it that way. Learn more about power you can count on.
