This year, utilities must get 0.02 percent of their electricity from solar energy, a mark that both Progress and Duke have met. The next solar benchmark is in 2018.
Raleigh-based Progress met the goal mostly by purchasing power from independently owned solar projects, says spokesman Scott Sutton. Duke, which is headquartered in Charlotte and serves parts of Durham, also has met the target with its own facilities as well as by purchasing power from other providers, spokesman Jason Walls says."
