Education & Resources: Duke Could Save Billions with Solar
A new analysis shows that Duke Energy could save its ratepaying customers nearly $10 billion with an alternative strategic plan that continues expanding solar and wind energy, retires aging coal plants early, and drops its budget-busting proposal to build a hugely expensive new nuclear plant in South Carolina.
The study was commissioned by the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) and other mainstream environmental groups, and prepared by the respected consulting firm Daymark Energy Advisors. The analysis is based on Duke’s own plan data, supplemented by information obtained from Duke through legal case discovery. The entire analysis can be read here.
