Webinar Revolutionizing Home Energy: Duke Energy Paves the Way for Affordable Upgrades December 7, 2023 3:30 pm EST 1 Register for the Webinar Hosted by SEPA’s Inclusive Utility Investment Task Force. Despite the many benefits of home electrification and energy efficiency improvements, these upgrades are out of reach for many households, due to high upfront costs or renter status. One option that’s gaining traction nationally — a financing policy solution known as “inclusive utility investment” — provides a promising path forward for achieving affordable home energy improvements. Duke Energy recently received regulatory approval to offer an inclusive utility investment tariff for residential energy upgrades in North Carolina. Join us to learn more about Duke Energy’s new program, how it works, how it will benefit customers, how it supports decarbonization, and the broad stakeholder process that led to its development and approval.
