      Duke Energy Proposes Solar and Battery Storage Project to Power Facility in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

      CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 14, 2016-- Duke Energy has proposed installing a microgrid, powered by renewable energy, to serve a remote communications tower in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Located atop Mt. Sterling in Haywood County, the proposed project would combine a 10-kilowatt solar installation with a Fluidic 95-kilowatt-hour zinc-air battery at the site and ultimately provide all the energy needs for the tower. The tower is currently served by a single overhead electric line. Because the tower provides emergency communications for the park, the ability to operate independently from the energy grid is important to park communications.
