Duke Energy Renewables announced it has purchased the 13-megawatt Victory Solar Power Project in Adams County, Colorado.
Victory Solar was developed by juwi Inc. A purchase price was not disclosed.
“Victory is our first solar project in Colorado, where we already have an operating wind energy site," said Rob Caldwell, president, Duke Energy Renewables and Distributed Energy Technology. “It’s the 50th solar project in our growing U.S. renewables footprint, and juwi’s high-quality site marks another milestone in expanding our solar presence in the western part of the country.”
Power from Victory Solar will go to Intermountain Rural Electric Association under a 25-year purchase agreement.
Duke Energy now owns and operates 2,900 MW of wind and solar energy, representing an investment of $4 billion.
