Duke Energy’s Jackpot Solar undertaking
Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions, a nonregulated business model of Duke Energy, has positioned into business operation the 120 MW Jackpot Solar undertaking in Twin Falls County, Idaho.
This is the group’s first utility-scale renewable energy undertaking within the state and is the biggest solar facility in operation in Idaho. It will present energy to Idaho Power by means of a 20-year power buy settlement. At 120 MW of capability, the plant will generate sufficient electrical energy yearly to serve the energy wants of roughly 24,000 properties.
“Entering the Idaho solar market with such a major renewable project is very exciting for Duke Energy,” says Chris Fallon, president of Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions. “Jackpot Solar will help strengthen the energy diversity in the state, and bring additional economic benefits to the state and Twin Falls County, while also supporting Idaho Power’s clean energy goals.”
Jackpot Solar will transfer Idaho Power towards its Clean Today, Cleaner Tomorrow goal of offering 100% clear energy by 2045.
“This project continues our commitment to clean energy while also helping us address the rapidly growing need for new resources to ensure we can provide reliable, affordable electricity to our customers,” states Idaho Power senior vice chairman and COO Adam Richins.
SOLV Energy accomplished the engineering and development of the undertaking, which is positioned on 952 rural acres south of town of Twin Falls. Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions will personal and function the undertaking.
