In 2009, Duke Energy Renewables began building and operating photovoltaic (PV) solar projects for commercial business customers throughout the U.S. This business line – which focuses on regions outside Duke Energy’s regulated service areas – is dedicated to delivering customized solar solutions for other utilities, municipalities and large business customers.
Duke Energy Renewables' 16-megawatt DC (14-megawatt AC) Blue Wing Solar Project in San Antonio, Texas, consists of nearly 215,000 PV panels and is the largest solar farm in the state. The company also owns and operates 1-megawatt solar farms for customers in Shelby, Taylorsville, and Murphy, N.C.
In 2010, Duke Energy announced a partnership with Integrys Energy Services and Smart Energy Capital to jointly own and operate rooftop and smaller ground-mounted PV solar projects for commercial, government and utility customers under long-term power purchase agreements. Smart Energy Capital develops the projects and arranges financing, which enables Duke Energy and Integrys to create a streamlined, end-to-end approach to bringing solar projects to market.
