Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. Key Developments

The Kentucky Public Service Commission Approves Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc.'s Proposal to Construct Solar Pilot Project

The Kentucky Public Service Commission approved a proposal by Duke Energy Corp. to construct a nearly 7-MW solar pilot project as part of the company's plan to add more renewable energy in the next decade. The Kentucky Public Service Commission said in a July 10 order that it determined building and operating the project, which would consist of three solar arrays, would not negatively affect the company's operations or finances and would allow Duke Kentucky to take advantage of a 30% federal tax credit and low-cost solar panels. Additionally, it would supplement power produced from the company's fossil-fueled power plants. Duke Kentucky has entered into agreements to purchase the two sites where the solar facilities will be located, in Kenton and Grant counties. Solar renewable energy certificates will be generated as a result of the project and can be sold in Ohio, with part of the revenue coming back to Duke Kentucky's customers as a credit. The total cost of the project is projected to be $14.8 million, with operating and maintenance costs of $132,000 each year and no immediate impact on rates. Duke Kentucky said it would seek to recover costs from its ratepayers at some point in the future.
