NPTRE adding 1.8 MW #solar array to 8 MW landfill energy project in N.C.

, working with a landfill gas developer in North Carolina, is building a 1.8 MW municipal solar project as part of the 8 MW Renewable Energy Park in Onslow County. NPTRE says it has an approved interconnection agreement with Duke Energy and secured site approval from municipal and state solid waste departments. The company also has a 15-year power purchase agreement with Duke. The solar array will feature approximately 6,000 solar panels. A 1.9 MW landfill gas-to-energy facility has recently been installed at the site. "Large solar projects of this nature are one of the highest and best uses of a community’s landfill , providing clean renewable energy while preserving other large tracts of land for open space or critical economic devolvement opportunities," says Paul Raducha, principal at NPTRE.
