Innovative Solar 42 LLC, which is developing a photovoltaic project in North Carolina, on Dec. 23 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator.
The company said it is constructing and will own and operate an approximately 71 MW (nameplate) solar photovoltaic facility located in Cumberland and Bladen counties, North Carolina. It is anticipated that this facility will achieve commercial operation in October 2017.
This will be an “eligible facility” as defined in the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935. The electricity produced will be sold exclusively at wholesale to third parties. The facility will use a substation, switchyard, and other equipment necessary to interconnect it to the transmission grid. It will be interconnected to the transmission system owned and operated by Duke Energy Progress.
