Protecting the Carolinas' Waterways

Protecting the Carolinas' Waterways

Duke Energy is proud to support the countless water stewards in our communities who are implementing innovative projects that protect our natural resources. In 2014, we established the Water Resources Fund, a $10 million, multiyear commitment to leave a lasting impact on our region’s waterways by expanding nonprofit partnerships and enhancing the environments where families live, play and work. Since the Fund’s inception, Duke Energy has supported 73 projects in the Carolinas and Virginia with more than $6 million in grants. These projects have improved water quality, quantity and conservation, enhanced habitats, expanded public use and access and educated community members about their role in protecting water resources. We encourage you to learn more about our local communities’ efforts to protect and restore our waterways and how you can support their efforts.
