On Feb. 2, the North Carolina Utilities Commission approved an October 2015 application from HCE Moore II LLC for a certificate of public convenience and necessity that covers construction of a 5-MW (ac) solar photovoltaic facility to be located at Carthage in Moore County, North Carolina.
The applicant plans to sell the electricity generated by this facility to Duke Energy Progress. Notable is that in November 2015, the applicant filed an amended application, indicating that the location of the 5-MW (ac) facility will be 415 Stage Road at Carthage in Moore County.
The facility in the original application was projected to come on-line in July 2016, with that timetable moved back to December 2016 in the November 2015 application revision. Electricity generated will be sold to Duke Energy Progress under a 15-year power purchase agreement. The projected annual sales of the $10-million facility are 7,000,000 kWh.
