The Peacock Solar LLC affiliate of Cypress Creek Renewables LLC won a Dec. 13 approval from the North Carolina Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity on a 75-MW (ac) photovoltaic facility that will be located along Old Wire Road, near the intersection with U.S. Bicycle Rte 1, in Laurel Hill, Scotland County, North Carolina.
The facility is projected to come on-line as of Sept. 1, 2018, said the Oct. 10 application for this certificate. The facility owner plans to sell the electricity to Duke Energy Progress pursuant to a power purchase agreement. The service life of the $141.8 million project is expected to be about 35 years. The projected annual sales of the facility are expected to be approximately 155,289,000 kWh.
Said the Dec. 13 approval: “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.”
