(Bloomberg) — Duke Energy Corp., the largest U.S. utility
owner by market value, bought a 20-megawatt solar project in
eastern North Carolina. No terms were disclosed.
Duke’s clean-energy arm acquired the facility in Shawboro
from Ecoplexus Inc., the San Luis Obispo, California-based unit
said Tuesday in a statement. It’s expected to start working by
the end of the year, producing enough clean electricity to
supply about 4,000 homes. Charlotte-based Duke has 16 solar
plants working or under construction in North Carolina.
