Projects

ESA III, New Bern (Craven County), NC

Development
In 2012, Holocene LLC collaborated with ESA Renewables, a renewable energy firm, by purchasing the largest rooftop solar project in Eastern North Carolina.

Financing
Holocene commissioned and owns the system through a special-purpose affiliate and partnered with an institutional investor to finance the rooftop solar PV system in a structure similar to that used to purchase, own and operate other North Carolina-based solar PV systems.

EPC
Holocene provided Construction Management Services.

Technology
The 1,260 kWDC solar rooftop PV system covers 177,160 square feet of rooftop space and generates the equivalent amount of electricity annually consumed by 100 average-sized households, reducing carbon dioxide by more than 1,000 tons annually.

ESA Four Oaks Solar I, Johnston County, NC

Development
In 2014, Holocene acquired early development rights for Four Oaks from ESA Renewables, a renewable energy development firm. ESA Four Oaks is located on land leased from a farmer in Johnston County, North Carolina.

Financing
Holocene arranged the tax investment and structured the project financing.

EPC
Under Holocene’s general contractor license, Holocene provided Construction Management for the project in collaboration with Conergy Projects, an international solar contractor.

Technology
The 6,500 kWDC fixed-tilt, ground-mount solar PV system covers 35 acres of farm land and generates the equivalent amount of electricity annually consumed by 500 average-sized households, reducing carbon dioxide by more than 5,000 tons annually. Project attained PTO in June 2015.

Faison Solar, Duplin County, NC

Development
