Growing Solar In America’s Strongest Markets
Duke Energy Renewables has invested in two of America’s strongest solar markets, California and North Carolina, adding 65 MW of solar capacity in 2013 – making us one of the largest solar producers in the United States.
With its abundant sunshine and renewable energy mandate, California leads the nation in solar power capacity. Duke Energy Renewables capitalized on the Golden State’s growth opportunities, acquiring the 21-MW Highlander Solar Power Project, our largest solar site to date. In eastern North Carolina, we built five solar projects – three in Dominion’s North Carolina territory and two for the North Carolina Eastern Municipal Power Agency.
