Duke Power has said that nuclear Power plants Are cleaner and More economical than Coal burning plants. So Why Are you building a huge new Coal burning Plant near Winston Salem a in the late 1960s, we had to decide whether to design the Belewas Creek steam station near Winston Salem As a Coal fired or nuclear Power Plant. At that time Coal prices were much lower. From the Cost standpoint the Choice of fuels was a tossup. The deciding Factor was timing a it takes about two years longer to build a nuclear Plant. The Only Way to Complete the new Plant by the time its output would be needed was to make it Coal burning. Q last weekend at Lake Norman i caught a Bass with a yellow tag in its Hack. What does the tag mean a frankly we re surprised you caught one so soon.

The financial affairs of Crescent land and Timber corporation Are entirely separate from those of Duke Power. Its profit or loss has absolutely no effect on Duke Powers electric rates. Q since electric rates have to be increased to cover the higher Cost of fuel and the tremendous construction costs of steam electric plants Why does no to Duke Power build More hydroelectric stations a hydroelectric dams look impressive but the amount of electricity they produce is rather Small in relation to our demand. Although we be already harnessed most of the available water Power in the Piedmont Carolinas our Hydro plants account for less than ten per cent of our total generating capacity. Even if Power dams were built on All the remaining Large streams in our area their combined output would Only equal our expected demand growth for one year. Its not enough. The Only Way we can keep up with demand for the Power is by building More steam electric stations. Q How can i read my own electric meter alts really a piste easy.
