The Sweet Tea Solar LLC affiliate of Headwaters Solar won a Nov. 14 approval from the North Carolina Utilities Commission on its Aug. 5 application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity on a 5-MW (ac) project.
Said the Nov. 14 order: “After careful consideration, the Commission finds good cause to approve the application and issue the attached certificate for the proposed solar photovoltaic electric generating facility. The Commission further finds good cause, based upon the foregoing and the entire record in this proceeding, to accept registration of the facility as a new renewable energy facility.”
The project will be located off Beaman Road, New Bern, Craven County, North Carolina, approximately 324 feet north of the intersection of Beaman Road and Old US Hwy 70W.
