Winter storm diego dumped a record amount of snow, sleet and ice across the carolinas, pulling down trees and damaging poles. nearly 700,000 customers were without power, and crews battled treacherous conditions to get the lights back on. crews appreciate your patience and support as they continue to restore power in the hardest hit communities where we live and serve.

We're always inspired by the colorful splendor of fall leaves, like these at our north allegheny wind farm in pennsylvania.

Clear, sunny skies are perfect for soaking up solar power, which is just what happens at our bagdad, ariz., solar farm.

A team of engineers in a warehouse is tinkering with technology that will change the energy industry, batteries. on an 80-inch screen filled with charts and graphs, workers can swipe and tap to learn how energy output from the solar panels outside is interacting with batteries and, ultimately, how batteries will improve reliability and add more renewable energy to the grid. click the link in our bio to learn more.

We are proud to have 2,200 veterans on staff, making up 8 percent of the workforce, and continue to recruit transitioning service members, guard and reservists. in observance of veterans day, meet duke energy employee and veteran wayne hambrick.
hambrick worked a couple of jobs after a back injury ended his career in the marines. but he hadn’t found what he was looking for – until he got a position working outside in sometimes difficult conditions with long hours. hambrick joined duke energy in june as a groundperson, eventually deploying to wilmington, n.c., to help with hurricane florence storm restoration. “for the lineman side of (duke energy), it works like the military – just a little more relaxed,” he said. “everybody is like, ‘let’s go knock this out.’”

Not far from our charlotte, n.c., headquarters, a team of engineers in a warehouse is tinkering with technology that will change the energy industry. there are robots, solar panels and even machines that make water from air, but they are testing more familiar technology at the mount holly innovation lab, too: batteries. batteries can not only store excess energy for when its needed, they can also control energy flow inside power lines, which results in fewer outages and flickers. as we prepare to install batteries on a larger scale, this thorough testing will be useful. click the link in our bio to learn more.

On average, wind turbine towers are more than 280 feet tall. and sometimes, these towers can be as tall as nearly 500 feet! talk about a high wind advisory. .

Bats get an undeserved bad rap, in tim hayes’ opinion. the duke energy biologist believes the sharp-toothed, pointy-eared creatures are some of the most misunderstood and useful animals on earth. “i can't think of another wildlife species that does more good things for people than bats,” he said. “one benefit is they consume enormous amounts of insects, but they've got a bad image and most people think they’re creepy. there’s not another critter i can think of that provides more value to people.” hayes has such a keen interest in bats that he spent months on a national committee charged with finding ways to prevent wind turbines from accidentally killing them. he’s excited the wind energy industry recently adopted operating procedures his group proposed to curb the unintentional deaths.

Since september, our customers have struggled with powerful, back-to-back hurricanes #florence and #michael. the storms devastated communities – flooding many and demolishing others. while crews are still hard at work, they appreciate your patience and support as they continue restoration and rebuilding efforts in the communities we live in and serve.

Many lineworkers compete in rodeos that test job-related skills like climbing fast and making safe repairs, and their families can attend to watch them work. we asked some young rodeo what their parents do for a living. the answers are equally surprising and adorable. click the link in our bio to learn more.
