Duke NC Expands Green Source Advantage Offerings (Ind Report)
Duke Energy
Date: 2019-09-16
In Charlotte, the North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) is reported to have approved Duke Energy's Green Source Advantage (GSA) program enabling the company to expand renewable energy options for customers.

The GSA program give large energy users flexibility in selecting and negotiating all contract prices and terms directly with a renewable supplier of their choice, including the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) generated by that renewable facility. The GSA program will be available until the total capacity of 600 MW is fully subscribed. Of this 600-MW capacity, 100 MW will be set aside for military installations and 250 MW set aside for University of North Carolina institutions, according to North Carolina's Competitive Energy Solutions legislation. The remaining 250 MW will be reserved for large nonresidential customers -- 160 MW for Duke Energy Carolinas and 90 MW for Duke Energy Progress. Facilities that are used for the GSA program will be owned and operated by eligible renewable energy developers.

Duke Energy's $62 million solar rebate program for residential, commercial and nonprofit customers in North Carolina has helped 3,000 customers go solar in its first two years. Duke Energy will continue offering these rebates over the next three years. In 2018, Duke Energy launched a competitive bidding process for new solar capacity and connected over 500 MW of new solar capacity. To date in 2019, Duke Energy has contracted for more than 600 MW of new solar capacity. The company also offers a solar leasing program.
