Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy, has begun construction of a 5 MW utility-scale solar power project in Beaufort County, N.C. The Washington White Post II project will be located adjacent to Duke's 12.5 MW Washington White Post facility.

As in the initial Washington White Post project, the solar energy generated from the Washington White Post II site will be sold through a 15-year agreement to North Carolina Eastern Municipal Power Agency (NCEMPA). NCEMPA consists of 32 cities and towns in eastern North Carolina that own and operate their electric systems.

The Washington White Post II project is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
