Track your usage

Use the Duke Energy app or sign in to My Account to track when your energy usage is spiking and adjust habits that may be driving it up. We also send Usage Alerts midway through your billing cycle so you can take steps to help lower your usage before your bill arrives.

Making small adjustments in your home can help unlock energy savings.

- Adjust your thermostat to the highest comfortable setting.
- Use a fan to help reduce AC usage.
- Close blinds to keep the sun from heating up your home.
- Seal windows to prevent cool air from leaking out.
