DUKE'S 'POWER IN EDUCATION' PROGRAM RECEIVES NATIONAL AWARD

 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Power Co. (NYSE: DUK) has won a National Award of Merit for its Power in Education (PIE) Program from the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners.
 The award recognizes programs that exemplify utility-education partnerships showing significant progress in achieving national education reform goals.
 Duke Power initiated the company-wide program in 1984 with a commitment to use its most valuable resource - its employees - to help address the needs of local schools across the Piedmont Carolinas.
 PIE volunteers work to provide academic assistance for students and professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators. The program also works to support school reform efforts through the Duke Power service area.
 "Through the PIE program, our employees are responding to the challenge that all citizens become involved in the effort to improve and reform public education," said Tom Mabry, Duke Power coordinator of educational services.
 Approximately 2,500 Duke Power employees participate in the program throughout the utility's service area.
