Ties to Duke Energy Abound in NC Utilities Commission Appointees

Published June 2013

An ongoing point of concern is how “cozy” the NC Utilities Commission seems to be with Duke Energy.

From Indy Weekly:

“[Governor McCrory] has not made any sort of justification for why he believes his obvious conflict of interest should not require any recusal,” Warren says. “It’s pretty obvious to most observers that he is conflicted.”

. . .

“It’s pretty clear to us that Duke [Energy] vetted these people. And that Duke still has far too much influence over various aspects of our state government.”

Write your representatives and the public staff to be sure no conflict of interest is keeping these deals behind closed doors. Utilities should be driven the public good, NOT by profit!
