Duke Energy Carolinas Approved to Launch New Green Power Program

The N.C. Utilities Commission (NCUC) has approved Duke Energy Carolina's proposed Green Source Rider. The Green Source Rider is a new program designed for high-energy consuming customers, such as manufacturers and data centers, to match some or all of their energy consumption from new load, such as a new or expanded facility, with energy generated from renewable sources. In order to participate, customers will need to complete an application with Duke Energy Carolinas requesting an annual amount of energy and renewable energy certificates to be produced or procured over a specified term.

Duke Energy Carolinas will then assign the supply source and contract term request with generation from its renewable energy source or with energy procured through a power purchase agreement with a renewable energy supplier. Participating customers will then enter into a three to 15-year contract with Duke Energy Carolinas.

Press Release - North Carolina regulators approve Green Source Rider for Duke Energy Carolinas customers
