Davidson County Solar Farm, North Carolina





North Carolina has just activated the final phases of a new 17.2MW (DC) solar farm in Davidson County, courtesy of a partnership between Duke Energy and SunEdison. The solar project was built in five phases on over 200 acres of land using more than 63,000 solar PV panels. It is anticipated the plant will produce 28 million kWh of solar-generated electricity per year. SunEdison and Duke Energy collaborated on a solar energy service agreement where SunEdison, which designed and installed the project, will manage the solar farms operations and maintenance.

Site Size: 200 acres

Equipment: 63,000 panels

Cost: US$137 million

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
