Mustang Solar LLC on Jan. 25 filed an application with the North Carolina Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity on a 5-MW (ac) project located along Gardenia Road, about 0.8 miles east from the intersection of Simmons Road and Sunset Drive, in Robbins in Moore County, North Carolina.
The facility will be comprised of approximately 22,230 315 Wp panels (or equivalent) attached to ground-mounted racks. It will utilize approximately three 1850 kVA inverters (or equivalent).
The facility is projected to come on line around Dec. 31, 2016. The facility owner plans to sell the electricity to Duke Energy Progress under a power purchase agreement.
The service life of the $9.45 million project is expected to be approximately 35 years. The projected annual sales of the facility are expected to be approximately 10,500,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh).
A project contact is: Matthew McGovern, 3250 Ocean Park Boulevard, Suite 355, Santa Monica, CA 90405, (310) 581-6299, email@example.com. That is contact information for Cypress Creek Renewables, which in recent months has gotten several certificates on North Carolina solar projects.
