Charlotte ObserverOctober 13, 2009 

Duke Energy has picked the first four sites for its $50 million solar rooftops program, which will install enough solar panels to power about 1,300 homes.

The four sites announced today will house enough panels to generate 4.6 megawatts, nearly half Duke's 10-megawatt goal for the program. Installations at the sites will begin right away and be completed by next spring.

The sites: National Gypsum Co.'s manufacturing plant in Mount Holly; a Highwood Properties industrial building in Greensboro; Food Lion's distribution center in Salisbury; and a Childress Klein Properties distribution center in Charlotte.
