This report shows how Duke Energy can reliably meet the state’s energy needs and save its customers money by shifting towards clean energy and away from coal and natural gas.

This event is free and open to the public.

Rogers’ main responsibility is to push Duke Energy away from dirty energy sources like coal and gas and towards such cleaner energy technologies as energy efficiency, wind and solar. He also works with the North Carolina chapter to promote the electrification of the transportation sector here in the state.

Based in Durham, NC, Rogers has worked as an environmental activist and advocate for 17 years. Prior to joining the Sierra Club, he served as Director of Environment North Carolina. He and his wife are the proud new parents of twins.
