North Carolina Change Location

Solar Energy

When you check out the rankings, North Carolina normally lands as one of the leaders for solar energy in the United States.

The reputation is well-deserved. The state is among the Top 5 in both overall solar power and the pace of new solar construction.

Duke Energy is a big part of that story. The company has a growing portfolio of projects in the state, which includes projects owned by the company's commercial arm – Duke Energy Renewables.

We also purchase renewable energy from others: More than 700 solar facilities around the state. Add that to almost 4,000 rooftop solar customers, and it’s no wonder Duke Energy and North Carolina are the South’s No. 1 solar success story.

Duke Energy uses a communication tool called Voter Voice to share timely information about public policy issues on solar energy that affect customers. Click the "Stay informed" button at the top to sign up for email updates about solar news.
