About

Crockett Solar Farm produces approximately 10,500 MWh of electricity a year, which is the same amount of energy used by 750 average homes in North Carolina. A crew of 80 local contractors began construction in September 2014 and completed it in just 14 weeks.

 

Economic Impact

This project provided over $260,000 in direct expenditures in Lenoir County for wages, lodging, and supplies. The result was an approximate $13 million increase in the property tax base of Lenoir County, without the requirement of adding schools, sewers roads, or other county services.

 

Environmental Impact

There is no noise, traffic, or emissions associated with the operation of the solar farm. Each year, the solar farm will offset approximately 5,155 tons of CO2.
