Greenpeace banner welcomes new Duke CEO

A Greenpeace banner circling the Duke Energy Center on Monday greeted new Duke CEO Lynn Good on her first day in the job.

A small airplane towed the banner welcoming “Duke Energy CEO’s 1st Day.” In finer print it included a to-do list: Keys to executive restroom (checked); quit coal and nuclear power (unchecked); and go solar (unchecked).

Greenpeace has been a persistent critic of Duke, insisting it shut down its coal-fired power plants in favor of solar and wind energy, and energy efficiency.

Good, Duke’s former chief financial officer, was named last month to replace Jim Rogers as president and chief executive. Rogers will remain as chairman until Dec. 31, when lead director Ann Maynard Gray will replace him. Bruce Henderson
