Duke Energy Renewables has struck a deal to sell electricity to three institutions in Washington, D.C., from a three-phase, 52-megawatt solar energy project that includes a 20-megawatt solar farm in Pasquotank County. The solar farm in Pasquotank will be similar to Duke Energy’s 20-megawatt Dogwood solar power project (shown above) in Halifax County.
