Form 8-K for DUKE ENERGY CORP

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On May 15, 2013, Duke Energy Corporation (the "Company") removed the Harris Nuclear Plant from service to make minor repairs in a nozzle that penetrates the top of the reactor vessel. The Company expects to complete the repair and have the unit back online within a matter of weeks. The Harris unit had been operating for 342 days since its last refueling outage in the spring of 2012.

The unit shut down poses no impact to the health and safety of the Company's plant neighbors or employees. The decision to remove the plant from service was based on data collected from the last Harris refueling outage.

During analysis of this ultrasonic data from the 2012 outage, the Company determined that one of the reactor head penetrations appeared not to meet the applicable acceptance criteria. The area under review is in the nozzle which penetrates the reactor head. Initial evaluation of the data indicates no evidence of leakage from the reactor vessel.

This type of repair is well understood in the industry and has been performed successfully at nuclear stations worldwide.
