The colony only concerns solar installations on a supply scale and not the owners of solar panels.

Markus Wilhelm, CEO of Strata Solar, said the company “looks forward to partnering with Duke to transform North Carolina`s electricity supply.” Cypress Creek Renewables, the state`s other leading developer, according to Wood Mackenzie, did not respond to the request for advice on the deal, but it signed the deal submitted to supervisory authorities. Duke asked commissioners to answer the question by Oct. 15. “These agreements continue to promote renewable energy in Carolina,” said Stephen De May, president of Duke Energy in North Carolina.
