Here are a few facts in the report:
  • The company increased its 2020 goal to own and purchase solar, wind and biomass by 33 percent.
  • In 2015, overall carbon dioxide emissions from generation plants were 28 percent below what they were 10 years ago.
  • Carbon intensity, the amount of carbon released per kilowatt-hour of electricity produced, is 23 percent lower than 10 years ago.
  • Duke Energy's price per kilowatt-hour of electricity is lower than the national average in all six states the company serves retail customers.
