Today was another exciting day for sustainability in Raleigh! We broke ground on the new 1.3 megawatt solar farm at the Neuse River Wastewater Treatment Plant. The City of Raleigh came together to form a partnership with Southern Energy Management, Progress Energy Carolinas, NxGen Power, and Paragon Commercial Bank in order to bring this project to life.
The solar farm will generate power power that feeds into the Progress Energy grid, and is the seventh of it's kind in the state. Our state is very well positioned to pioneer the shift to clean energy on the east coast, and this project will serve as a model for others in the future.
