CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) today approved Duke Energy's acquisition of Piedmont Natural Gas (NYSE: PNY). That action is the final regulatory approval needed to close the transaction. The transaction is expected to close on October 3, 2016.

Piedmont Natural Gas Chairman, President, and CEO, Thomas E. Skains, commented, "We look forward to completing this strategic transaction and becoming a part of Duke Energy. Piedmont's combination with Duke Energy will provide clear benefits to our customers and the communities we serve. Today's final regulatory approval reflects the culmination of much hard work and collaboration on the part of both companies and we look forward to doing great things together."
