The Slender Branch Solar LLC affiliate of Cypress Creek Renewables on Oct. 11 won an approval from the North Carolina Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for an 80-MW (ac) project.
The solar facility will be located along NC 131 Hwy, east of Faith Lane, west of Twisted Hickory Road, and approximately 3.4 miles north of the intersection of NC 131 Hwy and Silver Spoon Road. That is in Bladenboro, Bladen County, North Carolina.
The date the facility is projected to come on-line is July 1, 2018. The facility owner plans to sell the electricity to Duke Energy Progress pursuant to a power purchase agreement. The projected annual sales of the facility are expected to be approximately one hundred seventy-eight million six hundred sixty thousand kilowatt-hours (178,660,000 kWh).
The expected cost of the proposed facility is about $158 million.
