North Hills shopping center could one day become home to one of the region's most prominent solar energy farms.
The developers of the outdoor mall in Raleigh have been exploring the possibility of hosting a 250-kilowatt rooftop solar farm for about a year-and-a-half.
A project fell through last year for lack of financing, but the mall's owners are looking at other options.
"We're out looking for other potential investors," said John Matthews, President of Baker Renewable Energy, the company contracted to install the system. "We just have to find people with money who will stick all the way through the end of the contract."
