Duke Energy wrapped up six months of shopping for solar projects Monday, and announced it will increase its North Carolina capacity by more than a third. Despite the increase, solar remains a tiny fraction of overall generation.
- Monday’s announcement said the company was making a $500 million commitment to solar in the state, purchasing three facilities and buying power from others. See the full announcement below.
