Duke Energy has been slower than other major utilities in Florida to embrace large-scale solar energy. The utility is now pursuing major plants. Here are some of Duke’s future energy metrics.
Duke’s new plant under construction will take up that much land.
The plant is in Hamilton County, straddling that interstate at the Georgia line.
The Hamilton plant will cost that much.
That’s how much the next plant, in adjoining Columbia County, will cost.
That’s how much Duke expects to spend on 9 or 10 solar plants.
Duke expects to finish by 2022.
That’s how many solar panels will be erected by Tradewind Energy at the Hamilton site.
Duke will raise rates by as much as 3 percent for several years to pay for the solar.
