THREE DUKE POWER EMPLOYEES WIN COMPANY'S HIGHEST AWARD

 CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Three Duke Power (NYSE: DUK) employees have been honored with the company's highest award.
 John S. Garton of Charlotte, Margaret W. Hammond of Thomasville and James C. Pierce of Stokesdale were awarded the Robinson Award -- recognizing them for outstanding efforts to the company and the outside community.
 For receiving the award, each honoree will receive 20 shares of Duke Power common stock, an engraved watch and a certificate of recognition.
 Garton, a senior scientist with Duke, was honored for his efforts in forming partnerships with environmental and wildlife organizations throughout the company service area -- investing much of his personal time to foster these relations.
 Hammond, a customer service representative II in High Point, was honored for her volunteer efforts in the Thomasville area -- helping children and those less fortunate through her own efforts and through such organizations as the United Way, Meals on Wheels, Hospice, Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
 Pierce, a maintenance planner at Belews Creek Steam Station in Stokes County, was honored for his life-saving efforts to rescue a motorist trapped in a burning vehicle.
 Established in 1961, the Robinson Award has annually recognized Duke Power employees for outstanding service in various categories: improved design and procedures, public and customer service, lifesaving and human relations. A total of 44 employees have been honored, including present Chairman William S. Lee.
 The award is named for William Smith O'Brien Robinson Jr., who served as Duke Power chairman from 1957 to 1959 and worked for the company for 53 years. Robinson died in 1967.
 Two Duke Power work teams were also honored with Chairman's Awards that focus on teamwork instead of individual accomplishments. Established in 1990, the Chairman's Award is presented annually to teams of Duke Power employees who have demonstrated exemplary action or achievement.
 Honored were: the 17-person Fall Protection Team that developed new safety equipment to prevent worker injuries, and the 29-member Radiation Monitoring & Control Team that developed an efficient computerized radiation monitoring system for the company's nuclear stations.
