This month, the Guinness World Records named Duke Energy’s Lincoln Combustion Turbine Station the “most powerful simple-cycle gas plant”. The plant is located adjacent to Lake Norman by Denver, North Carolina.

What does this plant award mean for the Charlotte energy market?

This plant can produce power for over 300,00 homes and operates at an output of 410.9 megawatts, as the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance reported. The new plant is part of Duke Energy’s efforts to more widespread use of clean energy.

According to Kevin Murray, Vice President of Project Management & Construction at Duke Energy, says, “Duke Energy is pursuing an aggressive clean energy transition, already achieving more than 40% carbon reduction since 2005, The new gas turbine at our Lincoln site will become the most fuel-efficient gas turbine in our fleet. The unit’s fast start and high ramp rate capability will support the increase in renewables we are placing on our system while complementing our journey to net-zero carbon from electricity generation by 2050.”
