 Duke Planning Solar Facility at Indiana Naval Base

Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) has announced plans to build a 17-MW solar facility on an Indiana naval base.

Pending approval from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, Duke would construct 76,000 panels on 145 acres at the Naval Support Activity Crane.  The farm could be in service by the end of 2016.

The solar facility would connect to the power grid at a Duke-owned substation on the base and the power generated by the facility would be available to Duke Energy Indiana customers.

Duke previously partnered with the Department of the Navy to develop a 13-MW solar facility at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune.
