Strata Solar seeks okays for two more 5-MW projects in North Carolina

The Truman Farm LLC affiliate of Strata Solar LLC on Aug. 2 applied to the North Carolina Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity authorizing construction of a 5-MW (ac) solar facility to be located in Johnston County.

The facility site is located east of Applewhite Road (also known as State Road 1720), northwest of the intersection with Covered Bridge Road (also known as State Road 1700), and north of Williamson Lane, in the Township of Wilders, Johnston County.

The facility is projected to come on-line in September 2017. Electricity generated will be sold to Duke Energy Progress under a 15-year power purchase agreement. The service life of the equipment is expected to be a minimum of twenty years. The projected annual sales of the $14 million facility are 9,000,000 kWh.

A project contact is: Jackson Naftel, Strata Solar LLC, 50101 Governors Drive, Suite 280, Chapel Hill, NC 27517, 919.960.6015, jnaftel@stratasolar.com.
