Adani Solar, a Tier 1 solar module manufacturer per BNEF, is seeking to build a 2,940 acre solar facility in Pasquotank County, North Carolina. Permits have been filed for the Birchwood Solar project, however local commissioners has put multiple moratoriums on the project – and all solar development – while they decide how to move forward.
