Duke Energy's Renewable Control Center (RCC) in Charlotte, North Carolina, uses powerful and secure technology to monitor wind and solar power plants across the country. Duke Energy entered the wind power business in 2007 and launched its commercial solar power business in 2009. The RCC provides critical monitoring services for all of Duke Energy Renewables' operating assets, which total about 3,000 megawatts (MW).
As well as optimizing its own assets, the business offers monitoring and on-the-ground operations and maintenance services to third-party renewables operators through Duke Energy Renewable Services.
Customers who contract with the Renewables Services business or directly with the RCC enjoy all the benefits of a robust monitoring system and expert around-the-clock staff without incurring the costly expense of developing and staffing their own O&M business or monitoring center.
