Duke Energy acquires three 1 MW solar farms in NC, USA

Duke Energy Renewables has acquired three 1 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in south western North Carolina from ESA Renewables LLC.

By Kari Williamson

The already operational solar PV farms are:

  • The 4,298-panel Murphy Farm Solar Project;
  • The 4,340-panel Wingate Solar Project; and
  • The 4,242-panel Holiness Solar Project.

The power is sold through Blue Ridge Mountain EMC to the Tennessee Valley Authority, as part of TVA’s Generation PartnersSM programme, under a 10 year power purchase agreement (PPA). TVA will also receive the renewable energy certificates (RECs) created by the projects.

The solar PV panels were made by Canadian Solar and ESA Renewables will handle operations, monitoring and maintenance of the solar farms.
