The Maple View Farm in Hillsborough, North Carolina, recently added an acre of solar panels.
The solar farm, consisting of 780 solar panels, went live September 1. It’s part of a Duke Energy distributed generation project in the state; this solar farm will power 235 homes, according to the Daily Tar Heel.
Because state law requires energy companies to have at least 7.5 percent renewable energy by 2014 and 12.5 percent by 2021, these companies are looking for sources of solar power.
