Solar Smackdown: Oregon vs North Carolina – Infographic

September 1st, 2013 by  

Originally published on 1Sun4All.

Our friends over at renewableenergysolar.net have created another exciting solar infographic. This time it’s a solar showdown between Oregon and North Carolina. Enjoy the Solar Smackdown and some solar industry information about Oregon and North Carolina from the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Solar Jobs Matchup – Oregon vs. North Carolina

West Coast vs East Coast. Northwest vs Southeast. We’re talking about Oregon vs North Carolina. Created by virtue of a recent request, we take a look at how the Beaver State compares to the Tar Heel State in solar rankings. Jumping on the West Coast solar bandwagon, led by California, Oregon has a nice little solar structure in place. With almost 3000 employed solar workers throughout the state, spread out over 116 companies, Oregon’s solar jobs per capita ranks as the 6th highest in the United States, enough to crown them solar champion!

Notable Installations in Oregon

Bellevue Solar Project in Yamhill County was completed in 2011 by developer EDF Renewables.  This photovoltaic project has the capacity to generate 2 MW of clean electricity– enough to power over 200 Oregon homes.

At 5 MW, Outback Solar Project in Lake County is among the largest solar installations in Oregon.  Completed in 2011 by Obsidian Finance Group, this photovoltaic project has enough electric capacity to power over 500 homes.

Notable Installations in North Carolina

Davidson County Solar Farm was completed in 2011 by developer SunEdison.  This photovoltaic project has the capacity to generate 16 MW of renewable electricity– enough to power over 1,500 North Carolina homes.

At 13 MW, Washington White Post Solar Project is among the largest solar installations in the state of North Carolina.  Completed in 2013 by Duke Energy and SunEnergy1, this photovoltaic project has enough electric capacity to power over 1,235 homes.

    But why North Carolina vs Oregon? Are these two states supposedly leaders in using solar power as a source of electricity or were they simply selected at random.

  • MorinMoss

    5 MW is only good for 500 homes??

  • Kevin McGinnis

    Cool post. Would like to see more “smackdowns” between competing states, companies or schools.
