Financial Plan

  • Subject to the discretion and approval of the board, the company will continue to target annual growth in the dividend consistent with its long-term 4 to 6% earnings growth rate. Duke Energy's dividend payout ratio target is between 70 and 75%, reflecting the quality of the company's low-risk businesses.


  • We are reaffirming our 4 to 6 percent growth rate through 2021 off of the midpoint of our original guidance range in 2017 ($4.60), and extending the growth rate through 2022. Rate base growth from our investment plans, coupled with additional rate base from the impact of tax reform, will place us within the guidance range by 2019, and at the mid- to high end of the range in 2020 and beyond.


  • On February 20, 2018, Duke Energy introduced the 2018 adjusted diluted EPS guidance range of $4.55 to $4.85 per share.
