Duke CEO supports using solar energy

-A A +A

By Pat Faherty

Environmental concerns dominated shareholder discussion Thursday at Duke Energy’s annual meeting.

Duke’s recent coal ash spill disaster, climate change, emissions and pollution from burning fossil fuels and its position on renewable energy were among concerns raised by stockholders in North Carolina.

There was an unsuccessful attempt to have the company provide a semi-annual report disclosing all monetary and nonmonetary political contributions. However, a measure did pass giving stockholders the power to call a special meeting

“It was a year of accomplishments,” said Lynn Good, president and chief executive officer. “2013 was the first full year of the merger; we delivered $200 million of savings to customers.”

During about an hour of questions, Good defended Duke’s response to the Feb. 2 coal ash spill into North Carolina’s Dan River and the company’s cleanup efforts.

She prefaced her responses, pointing out 2014 has been challenging from a weather standpoint, with winter storms and ice storms.
