Top 10 solar-powered states

Duke Energy Renewables bought a 20 MW AC solar power project in Shawboro, N.C., from Ecoplexus Inc., lead developer of the project.

"We are pleased to add a quality project from Ecoplexus to our growing solar portfolio in Eastern North Carolina," said Greg Wolf, Duke Energy president, Commercial Portfolio. "Providing clean, renewable energy and opportunities for local economic development in the state are important to the company."

The energy generated from the facility is enough to power about 4,000 homes and will be sold to Dominion NC Power through a 15-year agreement.

Swinerton Renewable Energy will build the facility and is expected to employ more than 90 percent local workers during construction. The project is targeted for completion by year end.

Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy, has 16 solar facilities either complete or under construction in North Carolina.

Duke Energy Renewables, part of Duke Energy's Commercial Portfolio, is a wind and solar energy generation project developer for customers throughout the United States. The company's portfolio of commercial renewable assets includes 16 wind farms and 27 solar farms in operation in 12 states, totaling more than 2 GW in electric-generating capacity.
