Bay Ranch Project
Creating a cleaner, smarter energy future.
At Duke Energy, we believe generating electricity from renewable resources will play an important role in the transition to cleaner energy. That's why we're developing innovative renewable power projects to serve communities and meet the needs of the overall grid.
The Bay Ranch Renewable Energy Center will occupy approximately 550 acres of property located off Highway 22, just east of the city of Callaway in Bay County, Fla. The 74.9-megawatt (MW) facility will consist of approximately 220,000 low-lying solar panels capable of producing enough electricity to power about 23,000 average-size homes at peak production.
