Lisa Parrish, community relations manager for Duke Energy in Charlotte, spoke to the Hendersonville Lions Club during their Friday meeting at The Chariot, which focused on the current and future initiatives the company is taking to meet the demand of the growing population.
"We want to make smart investments in our local community and our energy infrastructure so we can keep up with our growing economy, plan for the future and continue to make North Carolina a great place to live," Parrish told the club. Lake Julian power plant Parrish also gave an update on Duke Energy's planned conversion of the coal-fired plant on Lake Julian in Asheville to natural gas. The 50-year-old coal plant will be retired and replaced with two highly efficient natural gas combined cycle plants, a cleaner and cheaper form of energy. Parrish said the plant will provide environmental and economic benefits. The natural gas plant will be 35 percent cheaper to operate, Parrish said, which will help offset new plant costs to customers. As the new plants are built over the next couple of years, Parrish said the construction will add 800 jobs to the area. There will be a significant reduction in sulfur dioxide (90 percent) and nitrogen oxides (35 percent), while mercury will be eliminated. The new plant will reduce water withdraws by 97 percent and reduce water discharge by 50 percent. Parrish said work continues on excavating coal ash from the Lake Julian plant. One of the ash basins has been cleared of the toxic material and was able to be reused at the Asheville Regional Airport. The remaining coal ash is being sent to a landfill in Homer, Ga., designed to handle coal ash, which contains mercury, arsenic, lead and other toxic metals. In the past four years, customers' peak electricity use in the western region, which serves 160,000 customers over nine counties, has tripled. Over the next decade, Parrish said Duke expects that to grow by 15 percent. Parrish said they estimate the statewide investment will create 14,000 direct and indirect jobs, $10.4 billion in salaries and wages, $800 million in state taxes and $550 million in local taxes. Environment Parrish also talked about the company's programs that customers have access to to save energy, such as home energy reports that show customers how much energy they use in comparison to their neighborhood. The neighborhood energy saver program offers free walkthroughs to help customers learn how they can lower their monthly bills. In addition to coal and natural gas, Parrish also talked about the company's renewable energy sources. Duke Energy has 21 hydroelectric plants and 35 solar sites in the state, the second highest for solar in the country. They also purchase solar energy from 800 private developers who own solar farms in the state. "It's our responsibility to ensure that our electricity is environmentally responsible; we are concerned about protecting the environment whether we are at the lakes, mountains, coastline - that is important to us," Parrish said. About 50 percent of energy that powers homes in North Carolina comes from nuclear energy, Parrish said.

There are no jobs open for their positions at the Allen Plant right now, but Stein said several of his employees plan to retire at the end of the year - a trend in the industry, said Lisa Parrish with Duke Energy.
The internship program looks out for the future of young people and the company, Parrish said. "There's going to be a significant demand for talent in the next 10 years," she said. Seasoned employees bring knowledge and experience, but there's something to be said for adding newbies to the mix, Parrish said. "These interns are reliable, eager and enthusiastic," she said. Enthusiastic interns can make powerful workers, whether at the Allen plant or another location in North Carolina. "There's always a place for good employees at our plants," Parrish said.

Lisa Parrish, a spokeswoman for Duke Energy, explained that the program - now in its 12th year - not only prepares students for careers in the energy industry but also assists them financially through the paid internships and scholarships to help them complete their college courses.
In recent years, the program has formed a solid bond with Richmond Community College and its commitment to offering more programs to prepare graduates for jobs in this field. "Yes, these are paid internships," Parrish said. An intern's first job is not necessarily his or her ultimate destination with Duke Energy, Parrish said. "We do like to give them opportunities to work at several jobs within the complex," she said. Parrish said the number of students successfully completing the program in this division is significant. "From this area we've had 10 students enter the program since 2009," she said.
