Duke Energy 8th in solar power

The nation's largest electric utility, Duke Energy, comes in eighth among holding companies for solar-energy capacity, the Solar Electric Power Association reports.


Duke's regulated operations have a combined solar capacity of 183 megawatts, most of it bought from other companies. San Francisco-based PG&E Corp., parent of Pacific Gas and Electric, led the list with 1,569 megawatts.

Duke Energy Progress, which serves much of eastern North Carolina, the Asheville area and parts of South Carolina, ranked eighth for the growth of its solar installations last year. It has 94 megawatts of solar capacity while Duke Energy Carolinas, serving Charlotte and the western Carolinas, has 77 megawatts. Duke has 12 megawatts of solar in Florida.

Duke Energy Renewables, an unregulated subsidiary, owns more than 100 megawatts of utility-scale solar, including 15 projects in five states. The power they produce is sold to other utilities.

Another way to look at that report is to realize that NC generates the 5th highest amount of renewable energy on a per capita basis.

I've often wondered what she said...

I'm curious to know why there wouldn't be more solar in Florida. It is called The Sunshine State after all.

I love my solar energy in San Francisco. My husband and I installed solar panels on our roof and we love it. It takes so much money our energy bill and we're pro going green.

North Carolina's solar policies are among the best in the nation. It is no surprise that Duke is among the leaders in the nation.

Still a long way to go though.

Solar energy has a great potential to fulfill the world’s energy needs. We should support the alternative energy resources to save our beautiful earth. Sterling energy is one of the companies who are doing a great work to support renewable energy resources.
