Duke Energy has been the subject of a lot of criticism lately, and it’s not all about coal ash.
For the past month, Duke had workers apply a chemical to the roots of trees near power lines in Charlotte’s Myers Park, Dilworth and Sedgefield neighborhoods. Needless to say, many residents were quite upset.
This week, Duke responded to those concerns by suspending the program. But Duke plans to restart the program after the company retools its outreach efforts.
