Duke Energy Progress, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, has completed its first issuance of $600 million in green bonds that will finance eligible green energy projects, including the development, construction and procurement of solar generation in the Carolinas.
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.
