The North Carolina Solar Center’s State Observation of Wind Program is part of an effort to increase the use of wind generated renewable electricity by eastern North Carolina residents by allowing them to scientifically assess their wind resource. Created in 1988, the North Carolina Solar Center serves as a clearinghouse for solar and other renewable energy programs, information, research, technical assistance, and training for the citizens of North Carolina and beyond. Through its programs and services, the Solar Center seeks to stabilize energy costs for consumers, stimulate local economies, reduce dependence on foreign fuels, and mitigate the environmental impacts associated with fossil fuels. By capitalizing on its close ties with the state government of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, the renewable energy industry, and various non-profit organizations, the Solar Center has developed into one of the premier renewable energy centers in the United States.
The Solar Center is sponsored by the N.C. Department of Administration’s State Energy Office, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the North Carolina Solar Center Foundation. The Solar Center is operated by the College of Engineering at North Carolina State University.
