On April 1, 2020, Camden Solar LLC (Camden) filed a request to build a 20-MW solar photovoltaic electric generating facility to be located in Camden County and operated as a merchant generating facility. Camden proposes to begin construction in the second quarter of 2021, with a commercial operation date of as early as the fourth quarter of 2022. The facility would be located on two parcels of land for a total of 218 acres located at the southwest corner of the intersection of NC Highway 343 and Sand Hills Road (Route 1132), Camden. The facility would interconnect with Dominion Energy’s transmission system. Camden is negotiating to sell the facility’s output to an out-of-state corporate buyer. The facility is expected to have a service life of 20 or more years.
The Commission has scheduled two hearings to consider this matter. This first hearing will be held June 22 at 7 p.m. in North Camden and is for the purpose of receiving public witness testimony. This hearing might be cancelled if no substantial written complaints regarding the proposed facility are filed with the Commission.
