Duke Energy Update for Bald Head Island

July 2022

Duke Energy is working hard to complete a multi-year power grid improvement project that will help harden our system serving Bald Head Island to storms and allow for isolation of outages and remote automatic repairs.

We’ve recently completed work in the area of Fort Holmes Trail and near the clubhouse at the end of the island.
Our next priority is installing some of the final, large switchgear equipment custom designed for Bald Head Island. We’re coordinating upcoming work at the overlook area with the Village and Bald Head Association.

We appreciate the community’s patience and support as we continue this work.

If you have questions or feedback, you are welcome to contact Danielle Peoples at Danielle.Peoples@duke-energy.com.

At the Village Council annual retreat on February 16, 2022, Pam Hardy and Scott Jennings, representatives from Duke Energy presented an update and overview of Duke Energy’s activities on the island. A video of the presentation can be viewed HERE. Presentation slides can be viewed HERE.

Duke Energy project manager, Matt Crumpton, describes how the island is served electricity by Duke Energy and the importance of improving the energy grid.
