The system is being built on the site of the former Halifax County Airport, which was abandoned upon operation of the new Halifax-Northampton Regional Airport. The array will cover 220 acres and feature about 100,000 modules. Geenex also is building a solar operations and education center adjacent to the solar field.
Upon completion of the solar farm, Geenex and ET Capital plan to sell the facility to Duke Energy Renewables. Electricity from the project will be sold to Dominion North Carolina Power under a 15-year power purchase agreement.
‘This type of scale, unheard of just a few short years ago, would not be possible without the support and dedication of a group of strong partners with a shared vision,’ says Dennis She, president and CEO of ET Solar.
