Duke Energy Acquires 20-MW N.C. Solar Project
Duke Energy Renewables has acquired a 20-MW (AC) solar project in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, from Geenex and ET Solar Energy.
The Halifax Solar Power Project, developed in partnership between solar energy developer Geenex and energy investment company ET Capital, was placed into service this month. Duke Energy Renewables will own and operate the site.
Duke Energy Renewables currently has more than 60 MW of operating projects in Eastern North Carolina.
The project was built on the site of a decommissioned airport in Halifax County and is located in Dominion North Carolina Power’s service territory. The energy generated from the site will be sold through a 15-year agreement with the utility.
The system employs 866 AE 3TL string inverters of 23.2 kW AC capacity each and has about 100,000 ET Solar and Chint solar modules. It can produce enough electricity to power approximately 3,500 homes.
