Opt-Out of Duke Spraying on Your Property
Sep 18, 2013 — I would recommend you opt-out of having Duke spray herbicides on your land. You can do this if you are an individual or business customer: http://www.duke-energy.com/safety/right-of-way-management/pec-managing-with-herbicides.asp
Please also spread the word about this opt-out opportunity.
To opt-out, please send a short email requesting as much to Mr. Lehew Pardue, Vegetation Manager for Duke Energy (email@example.com). I wouldn't recommend calling the number they list in the website as the three people I spoke at Duke customer service with had no idea what I was talking about. I would also suggest you have a paper trail since I've heard from some people that Duke has not honored these requests for some customers or it got lost in the shuffle. Please send me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org) once you've sent in your request so we can keep a tally.
This is one way we to protest what Duke are doing in Western NC. The more people that opt-out the better.
