NxGen Power has activated its 1.3MW PV system at the Neuse River Wastewater Treatment Plant in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The site, which is being leased to NxGen by the city, will generate around 1.7 million kWh of electricity a year, all of which is being sold to Progress Energy Carolinas. Southern Energy Management, winner of the City's 2011 Environmental Stewardship Award, designed, engineered and constructed the project.
“Today’s milestone is a culmination of a lot of hard work and perseverance by NxGen Power, Southern Energy Management, the City of Raleigh and Progress Energy. It represents a great achievement in building the energy economy in here in North Carolina,” NxGen’s president and CEO Michael Byrnes said.
