Fresh Air Energy II LLC on Sept. 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, informally known as Flat Meeks PV1, to be located in Martin County.
The facility will be situated on a single parcel located at 2201 Parmele Road, Robersonville, Martin County. The approximately 50-acre project area is located in the northwestern portion of the larger, 104-acre parent parcel, abutting Parmele Road to the south and west. The City of Parmele is located approximately one half mile to the northwest of the project site, while the City of Robersonville is located approximately three and a half miles to the east of the project site.
The facility is projected to come on-line by Dec. 31, 2017. Electricity generated will be sold to Dominion North Carolina Power under a power purchase agreement. The service life of the equipment is expected to be a minimum of 30 years.
