Site description

Duke Energy's Roxboro Steam Electric Power Plant is located on Hyco Lake in Semora, North Carolina in Person County. With a generating capacity of 2,422-MW, Roxboro is the largest Duke Energy-owned plant and one of the largest power plants in the country. The facility began operations in 1966 and was enlarged through additions in 1973 and 1980. The company has planned a retirement date of 2029 for the facility, while qualifying that this date is only for planning purposes and could change. Two units near the station are regulated under the CCR rule. CCR Multiunit 1 consists of East Ash Pond and Industrial Landfill. CCR Multiunit 2 includes West Ash Basin, East and West FGD Setting Ponds and FGD Forward Flush Pond.
