Verizon Adds North Carolina Solar Project

Verizon Communications signed a long-term virtual purchase agreement for the Oak Trail Solar Project that has reached commercial operation.

Leeward Renewable Energy, LLC (LRE) announced that it has completed construction of its 100-megawatt Oak Trail Solar project near Moyock, North Carolina.

“Verizon is proud to work with organizations like LRE that are key to helping us achieve our sustainability goals,” said Verizon SVP of Global Supply Chain & Sourcing and Chief Sustainability Officer Jim Gowen in a statement. “The renewable energy produced by Oak Trail Solar furthers Verizon’s commitment to protecting our planet and transitioning to a greener U.S. energy grid.”

Oak Trail Solar utilizes First Solar photovoltaic solar modules, which use less energy, water and semiconductor material in their manufacturing and are designed to have a longer lifespan than alternatives. The project also employs Nextracker’s leading solar tracker and software technology that optimizes energy capture and reliability features to protect solar panels and mitigate the adverse effects of extreme weather.
