The Overhill Solar LLC affiliate of Strata Solar LLC won a Sept. 27 approval from the North Carolina Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity authorizing construction of a 5-MW (ac) solar facility.
Overhill Solar facility would be located east of State Road 1227, at the end of Glenn Road, north of Faircloth Freeway (also known as US-421), and south of Southwest Boulevard, in Clinton, Sampson County, N.C.
The facility is projected to come on-line in July 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.
