I'm opposed to the rate increase requested. At the time of the merger Progress/Duke Energy made the following promises. What happened to them?
1> The strategic combination of companies will deliver future savings from streamlining corporate services and enabling better access to financial markets to mitigate rising electricity prices.
2> $650 million in guaranteed savings for Carolinas customers from fuel and joint dispatch.
3> Better access to financial markets for power system modernization investments will lower the total cost to customers.
