Solar Eclipse Won't Interrupt Energy Delivery

EclipseCarteret-Craven Electric Co-op is prepared to meet the power needs of members during the solar eclipse on Aug. 21.

During the eclipse, the moon will temporarily obscure the sun, reducing the amount of sunlight available to fuel solar panels in North Carolina and other areas near the eclipse path. However, our power supplier has planned for this event and has sufficient resources in place to provide reliable, continuous electricity regardless of the reduction in solar generation. Solar energy is a growing part of CCEC’s power portfolio. By relying on a diverse mix of generation resources, we are able to balance electricity supply with demand, and provide more reliable electric service.

NOTE: Observers of the eclipse should make sure to use appropriate protective eyewear.  See https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety.
