CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Duke Energy President and CEO Lynn Good about the delay in reaching agreement on coal ash legislation in North Carolina.
"Duke Energy's top priority is the safe operation of our electric system and the well-being of the communities and customers we serve. We remain committed to doing the right thing on coal ash with storage solutions that protect the environment, including groundwater.
"Our goal is to lead with a proactive, fact-based and scientific approach to this work, and we continue to advance the comprehensive plan we proposed last March. The work we're doing now allows us to continue down the path toward permanent closure of our ash basins in North Carolina.
