Record-breaking year in solar for North Carolina

We hope your New Year is off to a great start. As we work to advance the clean energy transition in North Carolina, we want to share some good news below.
 
Record-breaking year in solar for North Carolina
 
Our customers want more renewable energy and Duke Energy is making it happen. During 2020, the company connected almost 350 megawatts of solar power capacity which could roughly power 60,000 homes.
 
We’re also helping large customers go solar, including the U.S. Army’s Fort Bragg where the company plans to build the largest floating solar project in the Southeast to support energy resilience and security.

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
 
As you know, our company is actively involved in helping recruit jobs to the state. Since 2010, Duke Energy’s economic development and business recruitment team has helped bring more than 50,000 jobs and nearly $21 billion in new capital investment to North Carolina. “Helped” is the critical term in that statement. It takes tremendous collaboration with both public and private entities.

Reliable, affordable and increasingly clean power is a crucial competitive advantage. As we modernize our grid and accelerate our transition to cleaner energy solutions, we are keenly focused on striking the appropriate balance between cost, reliability and innovation to ensure that North Carolina remains an attractive home for world-class businesses.
 
Thank you for your partnership. We look forward to working with you and we look forward to hearing from you in 2021.  Please reach out if we can be of assistance.
