CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Name changes will highlight the final phase of the new logo rollout for Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) – the nation's largest electric utility.
Customers in the traditional Progress Energy territories of North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida will see name changes and a new logo beginning Monday, April 29.
Developed internally, the logo gives the company a new identity – coming on the heels of Duke Energy's combination with Progress Energy in July 2012. The logo rollout will be an expense paid by Duke Energy shareholders.
- In Florida, Progress Energy Florida will adopt the new logo and the Duke Energy name.
- In the traditional Progress Energy areas of North Carolina and South Carolina, the name Duke Energy Progress will be used in customer communications. A modified version of the new logo that includes the word "Progress" will be used to differentiate it from Duke Energy Carolinas, which serves customers in different areas of the two states.
