Stronger communities

Our investments in plants, poles and wires keep the lights on. Duke Energy also has a long tradition of investing in our local communities through charitable giving and by promoting economic development.

Energy cost and reliability are major factors for businesses deciding where to locate or expand. We can promise affordable, reliable and clean energy to companies who choose the Carolinas. They, in turn, bring new jobs and new capital further spurring economic development in the region.

Strong, vibrant communities also attract newcomers to our region and improve the quality of life for everyone. We focus our charitable giving on support for the arts, human services, safety, education, the environment, energy efficiency and economic development.
