Why Should You Pay for Duke Energy's Coal Ash Cleanup?

Record #:
Duke Energy has stated that it will pay for the coal ash spill into the Dan River at its site in Eden. However, its president and CEO have indicated that they expect consumers to pay for the cleanup of the other coal ash sites around the state which means that electric rates will rise. The price tag for this is between $2 and $10 billion. A concern is that many regulators who have the responsibility of answering that question of who pays have ties to the utility industry.
