Clean energy developer Blue Sphere Corp. has signed options to purchase two sites, roughly 20 acres each in Eastern North Carolina, where it intends to build swine-waste-to-energy plants. Blue Sphere is the developer and minority owner of the 5.2-megawatt food-waste-to-energy project on Johnson Road in Charlotte . Beth Anne Clark, a project development manager with Blue Sphere, says the two projects that the Charlotte-based company is eying would be about three megawatts each — smaller than the Charlotte plant currently under construction.

Rail transportation costs factor into Duke Energy’s plans of modifying its two Cliffside coal-burning units to also burn natural gas and will impact calculations on whether to modify other plants, CEO Lynn Good says. Transportation costs for the Charlotte-based utility are more expensive at plants with just one rail line, Good says. The possibility of Cliffside using natural gas as well as coal — called co-firing — could ultimately lower the coal transportation costs to the plant.
Duke Energy (DUK) is negotiating with North Carolina's environment agency over a $6.6 million fine that it was given over a large spill of liquefied coal ash, according to a report from the Associated Press.
