Duke Energy paid $1 million for the energy healing company Green Medicine, according to a Duke Energy spokesman.
Green Medicine is run by the family of a Duke employee who died of COVID-19 in February, but the company has not disclosed how much the company paid.
The Duke Energy spokesperson told Politico that Green Medicine received $1,000 from the Duke Energy payment fund.
The Duke Energy spokeswoman told Politico the company’s payments for the Green Medicine contract “are completely confidential and not for public disclosure.”
Green Medicine has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, according the GreenMedicine website.
In a statement to Politico, a Duke spokesperson said: “The company has a strict policy of not paying for services provided by individuals who may have died in response to their care, including by providing treatments that are not medically necessary.”
The spokesperson added that GreenMedis contracts are vetted by outside parties.
