City of Wilson Renewable Energy Program
The City of Wilson has implemented a Small Renewable Energy Program through Wilson Energy for the purpose of purchasing power from customers who wish to generate power from renewable energy projects which include solar, wind and bio-mass. Residential projects are limited to 20 kW (or smaller) systems and commercial projects are limited to 500 kW (or smaller) systems. All documents describing this program and the requirements thereof are available here for download. A credit for each kilowatt hour produced will be applied to the customer’s bill . The City of Wilson is also authorized to collect voluntary contributions to NC GreenPower which are forwarded to them for their use in supporting renewable energy projects in NC.

CARBON FOOTPRINT CONTRIBUTION OF POWER FROM WILSON ENERGY
Typically, carbon emission, or more specifically CO2 production, is about 2 lbs per kWh for a fossil fired facility. Actual heat rates, fuel content, operating cycles can affect this number, but not significantly.
Wilson Energy purchases its power through Duke Energy Progress (DEP). Our customers can use DEP’s carbon numbers to determine their energy related carbon (CO2) production.
