Duke has asked for a rate hike to saddle consumers with the costs of expanding coal power plants in North Carolina. Greenpeace issued a report July 25 giving Duke a roadmap to saving millions of dollars while transitioning to clean, renewable energy. Greenpeace will be flying the airship in a series of events across North Carolina.
