STATESVILLE, N.C. – EnergyUnited held a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, April 20 to mark the beginning of construction for the Perendale Solar Farm. The ceremony was held in Mocksville at the future site of the solar farm and was attended by EnergyUnited representatives, community leaders, elected officials and project partners.

“We are proud to demonstrate the cooperative’s commitment to sustainability,” said Thomas Golden, CEO of EnergyUnited. “This project would not have been possible though without the collaborative efforts of our industry and community partners.
