Largest floating Solar Power Plant in the Southeast now online at Fort Bragg

The Southeast’s largest floating solar plant is now online at the U.S. Army’s Fort Bragg in North Carolina after a major Utility Energy Service Contract with Duke Energy and its prime contractor Ameresco.

The 1.1-megawatt solar facility was part of a $36 million contract that focused on energy resilience and security at Fort Bragg, including infrastructure modernization, lighting and water upgrades, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning and boiler system improvements.

The floating solar system was built on the Big Muddy Lake located at Camp Mackall. Fort Bragg will own and operate the solar system.

The floating solar installation is being paired with a 2-MW battery energy storage system. The system will supply power to Fort Bragg from the local grid and provide power during electric service outages.
