The State of Solar in Cary

By 11:30 AM, that number had been reduced to just over 3,000 customers, including the Town of Cary buildings and facilities. It took some customers until around 2:45 PM to get power back, once again according to the Duke Energy outage map. Yes Solar Solutions, located in Cary, North Carolina was right in the mix when the outages moved down Maynard Road, from Harrison Avenue to High House Road.
