Powering Pinellas: Volunteerism/Community Involvement

Duke Energy Florida employees have volunteered more than 51,000 hours of community service within the last five years through the “Duke Energy in Action” program. They’re also on track to meet this year’s goal of 10,000 hours in the communities we serve.

Our employees rolled up their sleeves to help their neighbors. More than 300 Duke Energy Florida employees have volunteered more than 3,600 hours of community service with 100 organizations in Pinellas County since 2016 through the "Duke Energy in Action" program.

Following Hurricane Irma, Duke Energy contributed $1 million to assist its communities, customers and neighbors with recovery. The funds were distributed through state, regional and local organizations, such as the United Way agencies. "We are in this together," said Harry Sideris, Duke Energy Florida state president. "During and after Hurricane Irma, our customers across the state faced economic hardships through lost wages, home displacement and widespread devastation. As recovery began, these additional helped support communities and individual families in need."
