Investing in renewable energy is one way Duke Energy is working to reduce our environmental footprint. Wind and solar farms generate zero-emission electricity, reducing the threat of climate change – the biggest threat to our planet's biodiversity.
And as we grow our portfolio, Duke Energy Renewables is committed to avoiding and minimizing any impact that our wind and solar farms may have on area habitats and wildlife. From our preliminary biological surveys to ongoing avian monitoring, we carefully study our project sites and work closely with government wildlife resource agencies to ensure our wind and solar power projects operate in harmony with the surrounding environment.
