Solar Energy Project highlights

Solar Panels

Duke Energy Renewables owns and operates more than 400 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaic (PV) solar power projects at more than 35 solar farms across the country, delivering customized solar solutions for utilities, municipalities, electric cooperatives and large business customers.

The company has invested more than $4 billion to grow its wind and solar power businesses since 2007. It owns and operates more than 2,500 megawatts of renewable generation in a dozen states throughout the U.S.

As well as operating its own assets, the business offers operations and maintenance services to third-party renewables operators through Duke Energy Renewable Services. Operations and maintenance of renewables sites is supported by the sophisticated Renewable Energy Monitoring Center in Charlotte, N.C., which uses powerful and secure technology to optimize performance at wind and solar power plants across the country.
