Coal Plant Retirements1


Duke Energy is increasingly providing cleaner energy to our customers, shifting to more flexible, lower- and no-carbon sources while maintaining reliability and rates below the national average. Since 2010, we have retired 6,539 megawatts (MW) of older coal capacity, while investing in natural gas and renewables. By 2024, we plan to retire an additional 862 MW of older coal capacity, which will bring total coal plant retirements to 7,401 MW, or roughly one-third of our former coal portfolio.
