New Solar Project Planned for 2011

Piedmont EMC will be receiving an estimated 405,000 kWhs yearly in renewable energy credits from a new solar project that is being built in Hertford County, North Carolina. This project is referred to as the Murfreesboro Solar Project and is to be completed late 2011. Piedmont EMC is one of 22 electric cooperatives that comprise GreenCo Solutions. These renewable energy credits will help Piedmont EMC achieve compliance with the N.C. Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard, referred to as the Senate Bill 3 mandate.
