Tell Duke Energy to clean up!

It's been almost three months since a broken pipe sent tens of thousands of gallons of coal ash and contaminated water into the Dan River, and little has changed. At dozens of other sites across six states Duke sits on a toxic timebomb of coal ash waste.

Politicians and powerbrokers fiddle while more coal burns, and Duke executives scheme to get the public to pay to clean up the coal ash waste in North Carolina. They seem to think we'd forget about the damage that toxic coal ash is doing to our water. 

Duke's annual shareholder meeting May 1 takes place under a cloud of scrutiny, and you can help add the pressure, virtually attending the protests outside calling for Duke to clean up.

Add your name to our Thunderclap, and as Duke executives and shareholders and members of the media get on social media, they will see an army of Duke customers calling on the country's largest utility to do the right thing.
