Duke Energy Approved to Build & Operate Two NC Solar Power Projects

Duke Energy OK to build two solar power projects in NC

The North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) approved Duke Energy’s (NYSE: DUK) request to build solar power plants in two counties in the state.

Duke Energy proposed to build the 60-MW Monroe Solar Facility, which will be designed and built by Strata Solar; and the 15.4-MW Mocksville Solar Facility, in which Crowder Construction will serve as the project’s engineering, procurement and construction lead. Duke Energy Carolinas will own and operate both projects.

The utility added 300 MW of solar capacity in the state in 2015. The company has invested more than $4 billion in wind and solar facilities in 13 states, and plans to invest about $3 billion in renewable energy over the next five years.
