The Cork Oak Solar Energy Center and Sunflower Solar Energy Center, both under construction 90 miles northeast of Raleigh in Halifax, North Carolina, have a total capacity of 47 MW.

The two have a 10-year power purchase agreement with Virginia Electric and Power Co., and are the second and third projects PSEG Solar Source has developed in collaboration with BayWa r.e.
