Our top 10 articles of the decade

Did you know that the Nuclear Information Center (NIC) has been around for over a decade?

Duke Energy started this platform to share educational information on the nuclear industry and the nuclear stations operated by Duke Energy. Topics like the benefits of nuclear energy, innovation, ways our plant employees make an impact in their communities and more, have been written by many Duke Energy nuclear experts over the years to allow readers an inside view of the industry.

When this site began in May 2011, Duke Energy operated three nuclear stations: Oconee, McGuire and Catawba. Brunswick, Harris and Robinson Nuclear Plants added to our carbon-free portfolio in 2012 when Duke Energy and Progress Energy merged.

It's hard to believe that well over 500 stories have been shared with hundreds of thousands of readers across the world.

Let's take a look at some of the top stories over the years:
