Ecoplexus notifies North Carolina commission of sale of 20-MW project to Duke

Ecoplexus Inc. on Nov. 13 notified the North Carolina Utilities Commission of the change in ownership for a project company developing a 20-MW solar project.

Duke Energy Renewables NC Solar LLC has purchased Fresh Air Energy X LLC, which is the owner of a facility featuring a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity issued by the state commission.

Duke Energy Renewables, a subsidiary of Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK), had in July filed with the state commission a revised FERC Form 556 for this project reflecting the ownership change. The site is at 421 Shawboro Rd. at Moyock in Currituck County, North Carolina. The interconnecting transmission owner and the power customer are both Dominion North Carolina Power, a unit of Dominion Resources (NYSE: D). The maximum net capacity of the project is 20 MW.

Said the Form 556: “The project is a fixed tilt, solar PV electric generation facility. The facility is comprised of approximately (95,152) BYD polycrystalline modules rated at 310 W to convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. Sets of these modules are wired in series and the strings are wired in parallel sets to the DC-AC inverters.”
