Duke Energy PremierNotes earn interest at a floating rate per annum equal to the most recent seven-day average yield (non-compounded) for taxable money funds as reported weekly in the iMoneyNet Money Fund Average,™ plus at least 0.25 percent. Interest is compounded daily and posted to your investment monthly. Investors are encouraged to carefully read the program prospectus and seek professional advice from a financial advisor when considering participation in the PremierNotes program. Interest income is subject to federal and applicable state and local taxes. Overdraft and other fees may apply, as outlined in the program prospectus.

An investment in PremierNotes allows individuals and institutions to benefit from the financial strength of Duke Energy Corporation. PremierNotes are not money market accounts, which are typically diversified funds consisting of short-term debt securities of many issuers, and therefore do not meet the diversification and investment quality standards set forth for money market funds by the Investment Company Act of 1940. Instead, PremierNotes are variable denomination, floating rate demand notes that are unsecured debt obligations of Duke Energy Corporation and are backed only by the assets of Duke Energy Corporation. Your investment in PremierNotes is not equivalent to a deposit or other bank account and is not guaranteed, insured or subject to the protection of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
