North Carolina commission okays change for 75-MW Innovative Solar 42 project

The North Carolina Utilities Commission on May 23 approved a revision of its July 2014 decision to grant to Innovative Solar 42 LLC a certificate of public convenience and necessity on a 75-MW (ac) solar facility to be located at 7550 Rufus Johnson Road near Fayetteville in Cumberland and Bladen counties, North Carolina.

On March 28, the company had filed a letter with the commission stating that due to siting issues the footprint of the facility has shifted north and east, but will include acreage on a parcel of land that was included in the original site plan. The project size remains at 75 MW (ac). 

The March 28 application was signed by Richard H. Green, Member/Manager of Innovative Solar Systems LLC (sole Member/Manager of Innovative Solar 42 LLC).
