CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Duke Energy is trying to increase its rates for Charlotte customers by 5 percent, making this the company's third increase in four years. A group protesting rate hikes gave Duke Energy's new CEO $100 in pennies Monday afternoon in Uptown Charlotte. The activist said they wanted to show CEO Lynn Good that every penny counts. "Do you really want to be responsible for 70-year-olds like me having to skip meals or skip buying monthly prescriptions. Our voices mean something," said activist Phyllis Jones. Channel 9 looked into Duke Energy's history of increases and discovered that their customers are paying more than $20 every month because of all the increases within that last four years.
