Sybac Solar wins North Carolina okay for 5-MW Burnt Swamp Solar Park

The North Carolina Utilities Commission on Oct. 18 approved an Aug. 11 application from Sybac Solar LLC seeking a certificate of public convenience and necessity for construction of a 5-MW (ac) solar generating facility to be located at 4019 NC Highway 72 West, Lumberton, Robeson County, North Carolina.

The application indicated the electricity from the Burnt Swamp Solar Park project would be sold to Duke Energy Carolinas. But on Aug. 17, the applicant filed an amendment clarifying that it plans to sell the electricity to Duke Energy Progress. The company said the project is due on-line as of June 1, 2017.

Project contact information is: Markus Falz, President, Sybac Solar LLC, 6735 Conroy Windermere Rd., Ste 401, Orlando, FL 32835,, phone 863-229-1081.
