Moyock Solar seeks North Carolina nod for 80-MW project

Moyock Solar LLC applied Sept. 2 to the North Carolina Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity authorizing construction of an 80-MW (ac) solar facility to be located in Currituck County.

The facility will be located on Puddin Ridge Road in Moyock in Currituck County. It is to be a single-axis tracking, ground-mounted solar photovoltaic system consisting of approximately 367,213 solar PV modules and will utilize fifty-four 1.56-MW inverters set to 1.482 MW each.

The facility is projected to come online in phases with the complete system online by Dec. 31, 2016. Moyock Solar said it is in discussions to sell the output through a negotiated Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to Dominion North Carolina Power (DNCP) or to one or more retail customers in deregulated states that allow for such sales, or to sell the output in the PJM Interconnection market. The applicant has submitted an interconnection request to PJM.

The service life of the equipment is expected to be a minimum of 20 years. The projected annual sales are 193,957,198 kWh.
