NC regulators approve 3 large solar projects

The North Carolina Utilities Commission has authorized construction of three solar projects each representing 75 MW of capacity.

The commission on Dec. 13 approved applications for certificates of public convenience and necessity for the Peacock Solar project in Scotland County, as well as the Breeden Solar and Mount Moriah Solar projects in Richmond County.

California-headquartered developer Cypress Creek Renewables LLC plans to sell the electricity generated by the solar plants to Duke Energy Corp. subsidiary Duke Energy Progress LLC, according to the applications.

All three projects are expected to come online on Sept. 1, 2018, according to regulatory filings. (NCUC dockets SP-8563, SP-8564 and SP-8567)

Cypress Creek is developing a robust portfolio of solar projects in North Carolina. The developer has announced plans to build at least 1,000 MW of solar capacity in North Carolina this year alone.
