Duke EnergyCustomer service representatives do not help customers

Account: [protected]
Duke Power Customer Service Employees hung up on me three times while I was trying to understand my bills as they don't match with the past due amount. I unfortunately did not write down their names, but it feels like this is something they do when the question gets too complicated. I was explaining my questions: balance online shows $276.91, payment due to avoid disconnection by 12/10/20 is $256.53 BUT in the bill from 11/13/20 it says please pay $103.09 to avoid disconnection by 12/10/20 which we did on 11/25/20. I also asked to have a service fee waived as I made one payment of $153.44 twice on 11/3/20. I am unemployed right now and struggling to pay my bills in time, so it is very frustrating to not get help while I am just trying to figure out how to make things work and avoid disconnection.

    Duke EnergyFailure to advise neighbor of dangerous tree

    My name is Edward Riester and I live at 4 Deerfield Rd in Biltmore Forest. I advised the town manager of a dangerous tree in my neighbor yard that was leaning over the utility wires. I was told that a representative came and inspected the tree and deemed it okay to the owner Ginny Weiler at 3 Amherst Rd. Said tree came down on 09./13/2020 at about 4:00 PM. It took out all the utility cables and an older pole behind 8 Deerfield Rd. It damaged several of my trees and blew out my Invisible Fence. I was home but my fortunately my dog was not. The picture of the trees show the neighbor's tree horizontally. The blacken wall shows the results of the blown dog fence device. So far I am out $3250.00 for tree removal. I was being proactive by bringing the neighbors dangerous tree to both the town and to Duke but I am the only one out a significant amount of money. I am also a customer at 7 Westside Drive Asheville, NC 28806. Please comment,

      Duke EnergyCannot explain the calculations used to derive taxes on their bill

      My total electric charges were $311.87

      Also to the bill their were three separate taxes charged
      Gross receipt tax = $8.00
      Municipal franchise fee = $19.78
      Municipal utility tax = $27.24

      Total $55.02 no one at duke energey can provide how these numbers are calculated so a consumer can validate the are accurate each month besides being very high.

        Duke EnergySmart meter

        Reading about many complaints about the "Smart Meter" causing health issues even from other States!
        1. I have a bad immune system and I am concerned how this can possibly harm me or other family members.
        2. Being forced to have it installed and stating if we don't, we will have to pay a higher monthly bill to have someone come out to read it! Being forced to having it installed is wrong! Above all, not being able to make a reasonable choice!
        3. Reading so much about monthly bills being higher and sometimes double is scary when folks are out of jobs, monthly fixed incomes, or exposing one to harmful radiation.
        4. Seeing that Duke Energy does not have a very good rating with it's millions of customers.
        5. Omitting jobs! No one comes by to reads the meters now, at least coming on to anyone's property to do so.
        6. Telling us why it is good for your company, knowing it is not a good deal for customers!
        7. Why we are being dictated to and the way it is forced on customers!

          Duke EnergyGas service

          I installed a standby generator at the end of March 2020, and installation of the unit is not complete as I have a stuck gas shut-off valve ahead of my gas meter. Duke has been behind on repair work like this due to COVID-19, but they seem to have no idea if they will ever get around to replacing this valve.
          I have offered to pay for a third party contractor to have this valve replaced, but they say only they can do this work. I believe this fix is a 1/2 day job, and I think it is not reasonable to have to wait over 90 days for this simple fix.

            Duke EnergyTrees removed on property

            I was notified of three small trees duke energy was going to cut down on my property all I did was requested that the stumps be removed, the day they showed up to remove the trees they brought a Polk County Deputy to come up to the house as if I had threaten someone, the deputy sat in his car until the trees were removed, the deputy left and went toward Frost proof the crew went south to the next property to remove a tree. Why did I need law enforcement present, not a good way for Duke Energy to treat property owners They should have to pay taxes on all of their easements if you can not have a small tree in that area and the holes they left then came back and put rocks in them as far as I am concerned Duke is Cheap and dishonest.

              Duke Energypower outage

              This is the second time within 2 weeks the transformer has blown in our backyard leaving us with power for hours. I reported the incident immediately after it happened, and still an hour later no technician has come to even [censored] the situation. I feel as though there could've been more done the last time the same transformer blew to assure this wouldn't happen 2 weeks later. It's a significant inconvenience to a mother home by herself with an 8 month old baby.

                Duke Energy Corporationadding partner to my account

                I started service 6 weeks ago in my name. My partner and I are both trying to get a real ID and have our voter registration changed to our new address. I need to add her name to the utility bill. I was told that Duke energy did not do that. I can't believe that you can't add a second name and a second person to be liable for the bill. Your customer service is horrible and you should realize that not allowing a second name on an account has real world implications. To say the least, I am extremely unhappy. How do you expect us to change our voter registration and get a real id???
