Public Citizen teamed up with Sierra Club and Citizens Action Coalition to protest an affiliate of the Government of Singapore to acquire 19.9% of Duke Energy Indiana at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Docket No. EC21-56. Our protest raises four issues:
- The impact of rates charged to consumers stemming from the Government of Singapore’s current control of Genesee & Wyoming Inc. railroad and its supply of coal to Duke Indiana’s power plants.
- The Application is incomplete until the DEI Holdco A&R LLC Agreement referenced in the application is submitted to the docket.
- There is no commitment to dedicate a specific, and significant, amount of the proceeds from the $2.05 billion sale to its operations and investments in Indiana.
- Duke Energy has committed publicly to utilizing the proceeds of this sale to accelerate its clean energy transition, yet there is no commitment of such in the Application.
