Duke Energy (DE) has contracts to purchase more than 1,000 megawatts from renewable energy and cogeneration facilities in Florida. We actively pursue new projects and explore new technologies that will help us provide clean, reliable and affordable electricity to our customers.
You may be eligible to sell us electricity at our standard or negotiated rates if you own qualifying generation such as wind, solar, or cogeneration that is interconnected directly to the DE electric grid.
All generators that intend to sell energy to DE are fully responsible for adhering to all utility requirements, applicable federal rules and regulations, applicable state and local ordinances, and applicable regulations adopted by the Florida Public Service Commission (the governing body of regulated utilities in Florida). This website does not establish a legal or binding arrangement; it intended solely to provide access to general information about potential options that may be available through DE. Generators are responsible for consulting with appropriate legal and energy professionals in determining if generation ownership is the right choice and for assistance in navigating applicable requirements and procedures.
All customers that sell power to DE must enter a Power Purchase Agreement.
1. DE has a standing Request for Renewables. This is the best place to start as it includes more detailed information on how you can sell us renewable energy, frequently asked questions and a description of the process you must follow.
2. Customers wishing to sell us power must follow the interconnection guidelines.
3. Customer-owned generation sources interconnecting to Duke Energy's Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT) facilities should view the information on interconnecting to OATT facilities.
