A 21.5 MW solar power project in North Carolina has been scrapped after the developer failed to obtain a lease for the needed land, according to the Asheville Citizen-Times.
The project was being developed by Amenergy, a New Mexico-based solar energy company, and was planned on the site on the Ridgecrest Conference Center. According to the Citizen-Times, the conference center decided to not lease land for the facility because the project called for more land than first expected.
The completed project would have involved 90,500 solar panels over 200 acres and been one of North Carolina’s largest solar power projects. The energy from the solar farm would have been sold to Progress Energy Carolinas.
