Similarly, you may schedule a FREE Virtual Energy Assessment for guidance, energy modeling and assistance applying for energy efficiency incentive programs.
Stay Aware of Scams
Unfortunately, we have seen a rise in fraudulent activity as scammers look to take advantage of the changes and uncertainty all around us. Please know that Duke Energy Progress will never ask for personal information over the phone or demand immediate payment via money orders or prepaid debit cards. If you are unsure if a call or in-person visit is legitimate, please hang up or decline service and contact the customer care center.
The last several months have been hard on everyone, especially our small business community. Saving a little can go a long way on the road to stability, and we remain committed to listening, supporting and working with you as we all move forward – together.
