A Mooresville company that is one of the state's leading solar farm developers this week proposed two of the state's biggest solar projects among a half-dozen applications filed with the N.C. Utilities Commission.
SunEnergy1, about 30 miles north of Charlotte, applied for a total of 63 megawatts, all in eastern North Carolina. Individually the projects range in size from 5 megawatts to 20 megawatts, according to the filings.
However, SunEnergy1 is proposing to build 25 megawatts of solar power in two projects at the Rocky Mount Waste Water Treatment Plant, and another 25 megawatts at the Pitt-Greenville Airport in Greenville. Those projects would constitute the state's biggest solar farms.
