Duke Energy Renewables solar project approved by NC regulators

The North Carolina Utilities Commission earlier this week approved Duke Energy Renewables’ plan to build a 20 MW solar farm in Beaufort County, according to the Charlotte Business Journal.

The solar project would be Duke Energy Renewables’ largest to date, according to the report. The company, which is an unregulated subsidiary of Duke Energy Corp. (NYSE: DUK), plans to sell the power produced by the project to the N.C. ElectriCities through the town of Washington’s municipal power company.

The report also states the commission approved plans for a 15 MW project built by Element Power of Oregon, also in Beaufort County. The plans were scaled down from an original proposal for a 40 MW project.
