Duke Energy

Duke Energy is the largest electric power holding company in the United States, supplying and delivering energy to approximately 7.4 million U.S. customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. The company has a diverse mix of generation resources, including nuclear, coal-fired, oil- and natural gas-fired, and hydroelectric power plants. Duke Energy operates 11 nuclear units at six sites in the Carolinas.

The mission of Duke Energy’s Nuclear Generation organization is to produce electricity safely, reliably and cost-efficiently with an overriding value of protecting public health and safety. The company needed a consistent and transparent means to manage capital and non-routine maintenance plans to ensure the long-term operational and financial viability of its nuclear generating fleet. The company selected Copperleaf® in 2008 to support its investment decision making processes, improve system reliability, and deliver better financial results.

Our mantra is we want to plan the work and work the plan. The ability to collect and manage your investments in a portfolio management approach is really something that we use to reinforce accountability and ownership for the investments.”
