Duke Energy Renewables, part of Duke Energy’s Commercial Businesses, is a leader in developing innovative wind and solar energy solutions for customers throughout the United States. The company’s commercial wind and solar farms help utilities, electric cooperatives and municipalities deliver affordable, reliable and clean energy to its customers.
Since entering the wind power industry in 2007, Duke Energy Renewables has invested more than $2.5 billion to rapidly grow its portfolio of zero-emission generating assets. The company currently owns and operates approximately 1,000 megawatts of wind energy capacity, with another 5,500 megawatts of potential projects in the pipeline. On the solar energy side, Duke Energy Renewables has 17 megawatts in commercial operation, with additional development projects under way. Virtually all of the electricity produced by Duke Energy Renewables’ wind and solar projects is sold through long-term agreements to power purchasers.
Duke Energy Renewables is investing in more than just clean energy. Duke Energy Renewables’ wind and solar farms:
- Create jobs, particularly during construction
- Provide valuable tax revenue year after year to the communities that host the company’s renewable power projects
