The North Carolina Utilities Commission on Jan 5 approved an October 2015 application from Van Buren Solar LLC for a certificate of public convenience and necessity for construction of a 5-MW (ac) solar facility to be located on the west side of Dunn Road, north of the intersection with Pleasant Union Road at Roseboro in Sampson County, North Carolina.
Van Buren Solar plans to sell the electricity from this $20 million project to Duke Energy Progress under a 15-year power purchase agreement.
The facility will consist of approximately twenty thousand sixty-four (20,064) 340Wp PV modules (or equivalent) affixed to ground mounted racks supported on driven piles. It will utilize approximately six (6) 800kW inverters (or equivalent). The facility is projected to come online in December 2016. The projected annual sales of the facility are 12,279,168 kWh.
