GREENVILLE, S.C., April 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Energy Progress is proposing a decrease in monthly fuel costs for its South Carolina customers beginning this summer as part of an annual adjustment of the actual cost of fuel used to generate electricity at its power plants.

Duke Energy Progress serves about 169,000 customers in the northeastern part of South Carolina, including Darlington, Florence and Sumter counties.

Duke Energy Progress makes a fuel cost recovery filing annually with the PSCSC. The fuel rate is based on the projected cost of fuel used to provide electric service to the company's customers, plus a true-up of the prior year's projection. By law, the company makes no profit from the fuel component of rates.

The company made its annual fuel filing Friday, April 26. If approved by the PSCSC, the new fuel rates would go into effect July 1.

Under the proposal, typical residential customers using 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month would see their bills decrease from the current $122.49 to $120.54, a decrease of $1.95, or 1.6 percent.

Commercial customers would see an average decrease in their bills of about 2.1 percent, and industrial customers would receive an average decrease of about 4.4 percent.

The primary reason for the proposed overall decrease in rates is a lower under-collection of fuel costs included in the 2019 proposed rates than the under-collection of fuel costs reflected in existing rates.

Duke Energy Progress works to actively manage its fuel contracts to keep fuel costs as low as possible for customers. Savings achieved from the joint dispatch of Duke Energy's generation fleet in the Carolinas also help to minimize the company's fuel costs. The PSCSC reviews fuel costs and adjusts the fuel component of customer rates accordingly.

The proposed decrease would affect the bills of all Duke Energy Progress customers in South Carolina. The company's other South Carolina utility -- Duke Energy Carolinas -- will make its annual fuel filing in July.

To help customers take control of their energy use and manage their bills, Duke Energy Progress offers energy-saving tips and innovative efficiency programs for every budget to help customers realize additional savings.

For example, the Home Energy House Call is a free in-home energy assessment, valued at $180, designed to give Duke Energy customers more information about how they use energy in their home and strategies to save money on their monthly bill.

A separate request to increase base rates proposed in November is currently being considered by the Public Service Commission of South Carolina (PSCSC). The PSCSC will determine the appropriate price customers pay in base rates in the coming weeks after what has been a thorough and very transparent public review process.

The two clean-energy providers signed the strategic partnership during a visit by Shanghai Electric's Chairman and CEO Zheng Jianhua to Saudi Arabia on April 16. The scope of the cooperation covers a range of energy projects, including gas turbines construction, desalination development, thermal, photovoltaic, solar thermal, wind and combined cycle power generation.

As part of the "2030 Vision" reform plan, the Saudi government aims to expand renewable energy generation to represent 30% of the country's energy supply by 2030. Shanghai Electric has worked alongside ACWA Power to construct solar facilities since April 2018 in contribution towards this target.

"This win-win partnership will allow us to work more closely with ACWA Power to develop clean-energy projects globally and to build our brand internationally as we continue to expand operations along initiative countries." said Zheng, adding that the Group plans to invest more in the region over the next several years.

Shanghai Electric has made efforts to grow overseas. In 2018, the Group's overseas business income exceeded RMB 11.2 billion (about US$1.67 billion). Approximately 11% of this growth is attributable to global investment enterprise income, international engineering income and export business income.

To support the brand's expansion, Shanghai Electric follows methods for global development. The first method has seen the company establish new enterprises in nine Belt and Road countries, including Vietnam, India, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Malaysia. The second concurrent phase of development sees the brand expand its project footprint in initiative countries. Recent wins include the coal-electricity integration project in Pakistan Thar; the solar-thermal power project in Dubai; the power projects in Pakistan Qasim and Sahiwal; and constructions of the Panamanian and Serbian gas turbine projects.

Sales revenue in the Life & Environment segment decreased due to a decline in orders for solar energy products.

Profits increased over the prior year due to the greater total sales revenue, as well as successful cost reduction efforts. Together, these factors more than offset an extraordinary expense of JPY52,313 (USD471) million related to the settlement of long-term purchase agreements for polysilicon raw material in the solar energy business, and an impairment loss totaling JPY16,184 (USD146) million related to machinery, equipment, goodwill and intangible assets in the organic materials business. As a result, operating profit increased by JPY4,124 (USD37) million, or 4.5%, to JPY94,823 (USD854) million; profit before income taxes increased by JPY10,618 (USD96) million, or 8.2%, to JPY140,610 (USD1,267) million; and profit attributable to owners of the parent increased by JPY24,073 (USD217) million, or 30.4%, to JPY103,210 (USD930) million in fiscal 2019 as compared with fiscal 2018, due in part to lower tax expenses. The major reasons for the lower tax expenses are that Kyocera’s U.S. subsidiaries, including AVX Corporation recorded additional tax expenses in the prior fiscal year due to tax law revisions in the United States. Additionally, Kyocera recognized deferred tax assets related to tax losses carried forward from the merger of Kyocera Display Corporation into Kyocera Corporation in fiscal 2019.

Averaged exchange rates during fiscal year 2019 show the Japanese yen unchanged against the U.S. dollar, at JPY111; and stronger by approximately 1.5% against the Euro, to JPY128, as compared to the averaged rates of the prior year. This had the effect of decreasing sales revenue and profit before income taxes by approximately JPY7,500 (USD68) million and JPY2,000 (USD18) million, respectively.

The solar array installed at My Possibilities (3601 Mapleshade Lane) was funded in part via a $200,000 grant from SUN CLUB, an initiative of Green Mountain Energy dedicated to investing in nonprofits to advance sustainability for people and for the planet. The cost of the solar system was further offset with a utility company rebate that is made available periodically. (SUN CLUB's grant also provided funding for hydroponic sheds for the organization, which provide a low-energy, low-water environment for growing fresh produce year-round.)

My Possibilities selected Dallas-based Sunfinity Renewable Energy to design and install the 471-panel, 160 kW solar system on the Fischer Family School of Life Skills at the Campus for Higher Learning. The system is expected to offset 45 percent of the organization's electricity needs and save more than $540,000 over its lifespan. The system will also offset carbon dioxide emissions produced by 6.3 million gallons/pounds of gas, diesel and coal burned or the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 11.8 million miles driven by passenger automobiles. Additional solar can be installed in the future to further offset the organization's power needs as new buildings are constructed. My Possibilities currently serves more than 400 adults with disabilities onsite, weekly.    

"Schools are often ideally suited for solar," said John B. Billingsley, Chairman and CEO of Sunfinity Renewable Energy. "Their power needs match well with the sun's peak hours, and of course, the savings can be redirected to expenses that benefit the children and the school community vs. utility bills.

"Texas schools are becoming more and more interested in solar energy, but to date, only a few schools in North Texas have implemented solar or renewable energy – it's probably fewer than five schools. My Possibilities is on the cutting edge," Billingsley added.

"My Possibilities is dedicated to providing exceptional educational and vocational opportunities for adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. With many plans for the future, we will continue to meet the ambitious needs of our HIPsters* and expand the opportunities we provide," said Michael Thomas, Executive Director. "Solar is an investment that will pay us back for decades to come – not to mention making our environment cleaner, safer and providing a learning tool for our HIPsters."

*My Possibilities refers to their students as HIPsters - Hugely Important People.


My Possibilities is a Plano-based for-cause 501c(3) organization that serves as the pioneering leader in vocational education for adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities throughout North Texas. To learn more, visit:
