PSEG Solar Source announced that its PSEG Cork Oak Solar Energy Center successfully began operations in December 2017.

The 26.2-megawatt (dc) facility has a 10-year power purchase agreement with Virginia Electric and Power Co. and is located about 90 miles northeast of Raleigh in Halifax, N.C. It is the third project PSEG Solar Source has developed in collaboration with BayWa r.e.

“We remain focused on growing our solar business by partnering with top-notch organizations like BayWa r.e., on projects like Cork Oak,” said Diana Drysdale, president of PSEG Solar Source. “This solar farm can power 5,000 homes and will increase the region’s supply of clean energy. It is another step forward, toward a more sustainable future for all of us.”

BayWa r.e. was the project’s engineering, procurement and construction contractor and now operates the facility for PSEG Solar Source. The project was initiated by Geenex Solar, a developer based in Charlotte, N.C.

PSEG Solar Source completed the acquisition of the project from BayWa r.e. in January 2017.

“This continued revitalization of America’s energy grid would not have been possible without the important contribution of partners like PSEG and Geenex, and the strong support of the local community,” said Jam Attari, CEO of BayWa r.e. Solar Projects.

PSEG Solar Source now has 23 utility-scale solar facilities in operation in 14 states, including six in North Carolina. Solar Source has a total installed capacity of 414 MWs (dc).
