Duke Energy Renewables completes Black Mountain Solar Project in Arizona

Duke Energy Renewables, part of Duke Energy's Commercial Businesses, completed the 10 MW Black Mountain Solar Power Project near Kingman, Ariz.

The utility-scale solar energy project in Mohave County began providing power to customers of UniSource Energy Services in mid-December. UES is purchasing the power generated at the Black Mountain site through a 20-year agreement.

It is the largest solar array in UES's renewable energy portfolio and is expected to produce enough energy to power about 1,900 homes annually.

Duke Energy Renewables purchased the Black Mountain photovoltaic project from Solon Corp. in May 2012. Solon designed and constructed the solar array and will continue to handle operations, monitoring and maintenance of the system.

The Black Mountain Solar Power Project consists of 42,000 PV panels and is Duke Energy Renewables' 13th wholly owned commercial solar project.

Since 2007, Duke Energy has invested more than $2.5 billion to grow its commercial wind and solar business.
