Saving Energy & Money: It’s Easy

Saving money is important to customers. That’s why Duke Energy is continually working to help them use energy more efficiently.

The company offers programs in which trained energy experts inspect customers’ homes and share a tailored report on ways to save energy. Customers also receive a free energy efficiency starter kit to begin saving right away. In 2016, more than 54,000 homes received the free in-home energy assessment.

Small to medium-sized business customers can also take control of energy spending by participating in a similar energy audit. They receive a comprehensive report detailing the findings and potential projects that would result in paybacks. Since 2013, over 31,000 energy audits have been performed on businesses, with nearly 13,000 customers participating in the program.

Another way Duke Energy has helped customers reduce energy consumption is through more energy-efficient lightbulbs. Since 2009, the company has provided nearly 72 million energy-efficient lightbulbs through various programs, including free giveaways, its Online Savings Store, and through participating retailers.

In 2016, Duke Energy started offering free LED bulbs to residential customers, phasing out the free CFL bulb program. LEDs last 25 times longer than traditional bulbs and are free of mercury and lead – a safer choice for customers.

Duke Energy’s programs, products and services, which vary by state, recognize that our customers’ needs and expectations are changing. That’s why the company will continue to develop new and easy ways to help them get the most value for their money.
