Duke Energy Careers & Info

Current CEO: Jim Rogers

Status: Active

Organized in 1900 as the Catawba Power Company, Dr. Walker Gill Wylie and his brother erected a hydroelectric power station on the Catawba River. Using funds invested by James Buchanan Duke, the company later became Duke Power. Duke came to the midwest when it acquired Cinergy Corporation. Duke operates nuclear power plants, hydroelectric plants, and wind power as just some of their energy-related installations. Their goal is to supply electricity and gas in a sustainable way.

Duke Energy is an international company supplying industrial and residential power in the Carolinas, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Brazil, and Latin America. It is based in Charlotte, North Carolina and serves over four million customers. Jim Rogers has an interesting background that includes Kentucky Supreme Court law clerk, and Washington law firm partner. Rogers has been instrumental in drawing together many energy-related companies in Charlotte, putting together companies that can compete and cooperate.

Despite the slowdown in the economy, Duke showed a profit for its second quarter 2011 of $435 million. That was 33 cents a share and revenue was $3.53 billion, up 7.5 percent. Although Duke is now a large power producer, it is working to acquire Progress Energy, Inc. If that succeeds, it will be the largest utility in the U.S.

Duke is also concerned with the environment and has recently been placed, for the second year, in the prestigious 2011 Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. Duke is also developing a “smart grid” or “digital grid” that will make the household energy use available to homeowners by point-of-use. They will be able to access this data via the internet, or smart phone, and will be able to tell where they can control energy costs.
