Duke Energy's Helping Home Fund

"Helping our customers save energy and money is important to Duke Energy. For many of our low-income and elderly customers, energy-efficient appliances and technology are simply beyond their financial reach. The Helping Home Fund empowers customers to save energy by providing tools and upgrades that they otherwise might not be able to afford."
