The facility will consist of approximately 22,000 315Wp DC photovoltaic modules (or the equivalent) affixed to ground-mounted racks, which will be supported by piles driven into the ground. The system will utilize three 1.66 MW AC inverters (or the equivalent).
The projected date for the $14 million facility to come on-line is in November 2017. Electricity is to be sold to Dominion North Carolina Power under a 15-year power purchase agreement. The projected annual sales are 9,000,000 kWh.
