This week, EWG joined a coalition of public interest, social justice, watchdog and environmental groups to hold Duke Energy accountable for its policies, which affect almost 8 million Americans in six states – and by extension, impede the nation’s progress toward a clean energy future.
The Duke Energy Accountability Coalition plans to shine a light on work by environmental and consumer advocates, energy experts and frontline communities in states where Duke Energy operates as a monopoly utility.
“Duke operates in so many states that it’s hard for customers, journalists and regulators to get the full picture of the many ways it has earned the label of Public Energy Enemy No. 1,” said EWG senior energy policy advisor Grant Smith.
