I would think they will eventually settle for half of that. Isn't that how it usually works- they shoot for the stars and end up coming down to what they wanted in the first place. Make everyone think they are getting a deal when they are still getting an increase, lol.

The guy from Duke made a comment last week on WSPA that since everything else is going up so is the power, like "everybody else is doing it, why dont we?"

Yeah, I'm sure the Duke Execs and higher ups are struggling to make it on their salaries.

I am surprised the increase is only $18.00 a month. There has been no increase since 2018. Meanwhile, everything else has gone up substantially because of demand and supply. Quite frankly, I am okay with that amount of increase for the first time in 6 years. The economy is booming so we should expect inflation to continue.

I used to own Duke, but they don't produce enough growth to make it a good stock to own. The dividend is not bad, but you can earn more from a bank CD or savings account at the present time.

I'm no fan of this increase, but with all of the "clean energy" laws that have been passed the last few years, energy companies are under the gun to comply. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that these increased costs will be passed on to the consumer.

I would like to see them use the increase to strengthen the grid against terrorist attacks which is coming one day.

$18 increase in 6 years - there's GOT to be a way I can blame this on somebody I don't like.
