Duke Energy Carolinas is providing another affordable renewable energy option for its South Carolina customers that will enable them to see real savings in their monthly bills from the output of two new solar facilities in Anderson County.
Duke Energy today announced the completion and operation of its new 74.9-megawatt Hamilton Solar Power Plant in Jasper, Fla. The plant’s carbon-free power is enough to energize more than 20,000 homes at peak production.
Another wave of solar energy is expected Jan. 2 when the window opens for North Carolina customers to apply for Duke Energy’s solar rebate program. So far in 2018, more than 1,300 customers have installed systems and qualified for rebates.
Duke Energy Carolinas has completed its inaugural issuance of $1 billion in green bonds that will finance eligible green energy projects – including zero-carbon solar and energy storage – in North Carolina and South Carolina.
Duke Energy wants non-residential customers to have another option to install solar power on their premises. The company recently filed to be a certified solar lessor with the North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC).
