Robert Plogman Way.Dedication 6622Dedication 3 6622Dedication 2 6622

Your community has worked closely with Energy Alliances to evaluate options for renewing the both the electric natural gas program beyond June 2022. Due to a significant increase in energy prices since summer 2021 and particularly this past winter, Energy Alliances recommended to the elected officials not to lock into any prices at this time and to have all accounts on the aggregation programs go back to Duke’s default supply rates starting with their July 2022 bill.
