Revenue inched up 2.2% to $24.7 billion in 2019 at Duke as the energy company added 1,500 megawatts of wind and solar projects—part of Good’s pledge that the company will meet a goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. But over the past several months, business closures owing to the pandemic have reduced demand for electricity. Duke reportedly rebuffed a recent takeover bid by NextEra Energy, but buzz about a possible deal continues. Such a merger—uniting the largest and the third-largest power utilities in the country—would encounter significant regulatory hurdles, but analysts say it’s unlikely Good would be leading any combined entity.
