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.
