About 50 people protested Wednesday against the proposed Duke Energy rate hike, saying that the utility company’s plan will hurt elderly and poor residents who cannot afford to pay higher power bills, and will continue the company’s harmful effects on the environment.

The demonstrators read speeches and sang songs against the proposal at their rally in front of the Forsyth County Hall of Justice on North Main Street. About 45 minutes after the rally ended, the N.C. Utilities Commission held a public hearing inside the courthouse on Duke’s rate-hike proposal.
