NTE Carolinas Solar, an affiliate of NTE Energy, was granted its Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity from the North Carolina Utilities Commission on June 5, 2017 for its Fayetteville Solar Energy Center, located near Fayetteville, in Cumberland County, North Carolina.

The issuance of the CPCN, a requirement for beginning construction, is a crucial step for the 30 MW project.

The Fayetteville Solar Energy Center will be an efficient, clean source of renewable energy and capacity for communities and utilities in the Carolinas and across the Southeast. The facility will consist of about 124,000 solar photovoltaic modules, generating electricity directly from sunlight, producing enough renewable power to supply nearly 6,000 homes.

“NTE Energy is proud to enter the renewable market with the Fayetteville Solar Energy Center, which will provide a clean source of energy to the Carolinas,” said Seth Shortlidge, President and CEO of NTE Energy.

The project is expected to commence construction in 2018 and is expected to reach full commercial operation in 2020.
