Duke Energy Renewables Acquires Arizona Solar Farm

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/2/2012, Location: North America

Duke Energy Renewables has acquired a 10-megawatt (MW) utility-scale solar project near Kingman, Ariz., from SOLON Corp. The Black Mountain Solar Project under construction in Mohave County is expected to achieve commercial operation in October of this year. UniSource Energy Services (UES) will purchase the power generated at the Black Mountain site through a 20-year power purchase agreement.

“This acquisition expands our footprint in the western United States and helps a premier Arizona energy service provider deliver affordable, zero-emission renewable power to its customers,” said Duke Energy Renewables President Greg Wolf. “Comprised of more than 40,000 solar panels, the Black Mountain project is expected to produce enough electricity to power about 2,000 homes.”

Duke Energy Renewables, part of Duke Energy’s Commercial Businesses, purchased the photovoltaic project from SOLON Corp., one of the largest solar power plant developers in the U.S. Financial terms were not disclosed. SOLON designed the solar array, powered by SOLON’s single-axis tracking technology, and will construct and continue to handle operations, monitoring and maintenance of the system after it is commissioned.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Duke Energy on this project to provide a cost effective way for Unisource Energy Services to bring solar to Arizona,” said Dan Alcombright, president and CEO of SOLON Corporation. “With more than 60 MW of utility-scale photovoltaic systems installed in Arizona, SOLON is committed to delivering proven solutions to utilities and creating renewable energy jobs for the economy. We are proud that this 10-MW project will create more than 250 local jobs during construction.”
