NC GreenPower Large Volume

What is Renewable Power?

Renewable power is electricity produced from resources – like the sun, wind, water and more. We are helping to generate more renewable power by offering our customers programs that directly support the development of new clean energy facilities.

Duke Energy is working with NC GreenPower, a nonprofit, statewide organization. NC GreenPower gives you the ability to support the development of clean power sources throughout North Carolina.

Here's how it works

Large customers can choose to participate in the NC Renewable Energy Program. The program gives large-volume customers the ability to purchase renewable power at $2.50 per 250-kWh-block. The amount purchased is added to their regular monthly electric bill. A minimum of 40 blocks (4,000 kWh) is required each month to participate.
