WRAL: Environmental groups push to break Duke Energy’s monopoly

 — A new coalition of environmental groups called for a sea change Wednesday in how North Carolina does electricity: an end to Duke Energy’s monopoly.

The group delivered letters to Gov. Roy Cooper and General Assembly leadership that said “the interests of utility monopolies no longer coincide with those of the state’s electric power customers.”

They also called on politicians up and down the ladder to stop taking campaign contributions from the energy giant.
