Duke Energy Renewables, part of Duke Energy's commercial businesses, has completed its 10 MW Black Mountain solar power project, located near Kingman, Ariz.

"We've dedicated significant time and effort to embrace solar energy as a clean, cost-effective renewable resource for our customers," says Paul J. Bonavia, chairman and CEO of UES and its parent company, UNS Energy Corp. “The Black Mountain system shows how we can expand our renewable energy portfolio while also investing in our community and help to create jobs.”
