CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Duke Energy is taking a new step to convince federal regulators to approve its merger with Progress Energy.
On Tuesday, the Charlotte-based utility offered to have an independent person monitor the company’s $110 million investment in power lines.
It would let competing companies supply energy from other states so consumers could still get competitive prices.
