11/1/2010 - WNCs largest rooftop solar array goes online
by Michael Muller

Western North Carolina's largest rooftop solar array went online this afternoon on the rooftop of Conrad Industries' A-B Emblem facility in Weaverville. The system is expected to generate 325,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity this year alone -- roughly the energy demand of 22 homes -- reducing annual carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 230 tons.

SunEnergy1 owns and operates the array and Progress Energy Carolina has signed an agreement to purchase the system's entire output and use it to provide power to its customers through its SunSense program. The photovoltaic array, now the largest in Western North Carolina, will be one of the largest in the country when Phase II of the project is completed sometime next year.
