Duke Energy to Build Three Solar Projects in Eastern North Carolina
Duke Energy Renewables began construction on three utility-scale solar power projects totaling 30 MW in Eastern North Carolina. The 20-MW Dogwood Solar Power Project is located in Halifax County, near Scotland Neck. The company is also building two 5-MW projects, one in Bertie County near Windsor, named Windsor Cooper Hill Solar. The other, Bethel Price Solar, is in Pitt County, near Bethel. Power from these projects will be sold through long-term, fixed price contracts. SunEnergy1 is building the PV projects, which were completed at the end of 2013. The 140,000 high efficiency Virtus II PV modules for the three sites are being supplied by ReneSola.
