SunEnergy1 solar power project developers seek uprate

Sponsored by

The North Carolina Utilities Commission on June 27 terminated a certificate of public convenience and necessity for SunEnergy1 LLC so the company can go through the approval process again for an uprated version of a solar power project.

In November 2013, the commission issued a certificate to SunEnergy1 for construction of a 12 MW solar photovoltaic facility to be located on U.S. Highway 64, east of Creswell in Washington County, N.C., according to GenerationHub.

On June 18, the company filed an amendment changing the capacity of the facility to 14 MW. The amendment further states that a portion of the site for the facility is being changed by the removal of one parcel and the addition of other parcels to the site layout.

“Based on the amendment to the application, the commission finds good cause to cancel the CPCN issued on November 13, 2013, to require the applicant to publish notice of the change in the facility's capacity and site layout, and to require another review of the facility by the State Clearinghouse,” said the June 27 order.

The $44 million facility is a single N-S axis tracking, ground mounted solar photovoltaic system consisting of about 65,334 PV modules and will use eight 1.5 MW inverters and two 1.0 MW inverters. The facility is expected to be energized in phases as available with the complete system on line by Dec. 31, 2014. “The applicant plans to sell the electricity to Dominion Power under a Power Purchase Agreement,” the June 18 amendment application said.
