As the new year begins, customers of Duke Energy Progress in South Carolina will see savings in their monthly energy bills related to the costs of programs that help them save energy and money.

Duke Energy Progress is committed to helping customers reduce energy consumption and resulting costs through energy-efficiency programs and assistance for low-income customers. As of year-end 2017, South Carolina customers' energy consumption had been reduced by about 2.9 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) as a result of participation in the company's programs. That's enough energy to power more than 240,000 average homes for a year.

Duke Energy Progress today made its annual filing with the Public Service Commission of South Carolina (PSCSC) to recover the costs of implementing these programs.

The total monthly impact of the proposed rate change for a residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month is a decrease of $2.32. For non-residential customers, the impact will vary based on the opt-out elections made by the customer.

These rates have decreased primarily due to collection of previously under-recovered costs that were included in prior year rates.

The charge covers the cost of implementing energy efficiency programs and providing incentives to help customers take control of their energy usage and save money. The charge is reviewed annually by the PSCSC.

Duke Energy Progress serves about 168,000 customers in the northeastern part of South Carolina, including DarlingtonFlorence and Sumter counties.
