AARP advocates throughout North Carolina are still fighting against proposals to increase your electric bills.  Duke Energy Carolinas' request to raise rates for consumers in the Piedmont and Western portions of the state is excessive and unfair. 

The North Carolina Utililities Commission is weighing concerns over the proposal to raise rates by 16.7 percent in addition to a major increase to your monthly service charge.  But, the Commissioners need to hear from you.

Please let the State's Utilities Commissioners know you cannot afford higher energy bills.

AARP wants to make sure that your concerns about the Duke Energy Carolinas request are heard by the Utilities Commissioners.  Tell Commissioners that the rate hike is too much by signing this petition.
