Pine Gate Renewables’ 108-MW North Carolina solar project now online

Pine Gate Renewables announced today that its Trent River Solar project located in Pollocksville, North Carolina, is now online and generating 108 MW of energy. The project is one of the first to be awarded a 20-year power purchase agreement through Duke Energy’s Competitive Procurement of Renewable Energy (CPRE) program. United Natural Foods invested in the site.

Trent River Solar broke ground in July 2020 and reached its commercial operation date this month. The site features 832,170 solar panels covering about 725 acres.

“We’re thrilled to bring low cost, clean power options to the local residents and businesses of Jones County,” said Ben Catt, CEO of Pine Gate Renewables. “It’s exciting to see such a big project like Trent River Solar come to life. This is another testament to Blue Ridge Power’s team of in-house experts, who conducted all the engineering, procurement and construction for this project.”

Trent River Solar is the latest Pine Gate Renewables site to go online amongst its portfolio of 36 solar projects already in operation or under construction in North Carolina.

Silver Pine Energy Holdings and Pine Gate Renewables are joint venture partners for the project.
