FLS Energy has closed financing and begun construction on 33 MW of utility-scale solar farms across seven locations in North Carolina.
The solar plants will produce approximately 50 million kWh of electricity per year – enough energy to power over 4,600 average U.S. homes.
This portfolio of projects, being constructed as a bundle and financed by Key Bank, is the fourth phase of approximately 250 MW of solar energy facilities FLS Energy will be building this year.
"We are very excited to have a new partner in KeyBanc and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship," says Dale Freudenberger, CEO of FLS Energy." This portfolio of projects is another example of how the North Carolina solar industry continues to create high-paying jobs while making our state the emerging cleantech hub of the eastern U.S."
