Duke Developing 30 Megawatts of Solar Projects in North Carolina
Duke Energy Corp. (DUK), the largest U.S. utility owner, is developing three solar farms with 30 megawatts of capacity in eastern North Carolina.
The 20-megawatt Dogwood Solar Power Project in Halifax County and two 5-megawatt plants, Windsor Cooper Hill Solar in Bertie County and Bethel Price Solar in Pitt County, will all be completed this year, the company said today in a statement.
SunEnergy1, based in Mooresville, North Carolina, is designing and building the solar farms with panels from Jiashan, China-based ReneSola Ltd. The plants will supply enough electricity for about 6,000 homes.
With these projects, Charlotte, North Carolina-based Duke has 20 U.S. solar farms.
