Duke Energy chief executive Lynn Good has, for a second year, landed on Fortune’s “Most Powerful Women” list.

Good, Duke’s CEO and president since 2013, again ranks 13th on the annual list.

After spending much of 2014 responding to Duke’s coal ash spill into the Dan River, the magazine says, Good has “moved swiftly to bolster Duke’s core utility business.”

Duke invested $2 billion in the Atlantic Coast Pipeline that will bring natural gas to eastern North Carolina, Fortune notes, and plans to spend $3 billion in renewable energy over the next five years.

Good joined Boeing’s board last month.
