Duke Energy now has more than 10,000 MW of solar and wind energy. You might think it’s in the Carolinas, where Duke is home-based out of Charlotte, NC, but it’s not.
Duke just declared Idaho’s largest solar plant commercially operable. The 120 MW Jackpot Solar Plant will provide energy to Idaho Power Company through a 20-year PPA (Power Purchase Agreement).
Jackpot Solar Plant sits on 952 acres, just south of Twin Falls, Idaho. Duke Energy not only owns the plant but will also operate it. This is just an extension of Duke Energy’s plans to reach 16,000 MW of renewables by 2025 and 47,000 MW by 2050.
