Santa Fe-based AMENERGY Inc. said Friday it has applied to the North Carolina Utilities Commission to install a $64.5 million solar panel project that would generate 21.5 megawatts of electricity.

If approved, the project would consist of 90,500 solar panels near Ashville, NC., AMENERGY said in a news release. The power would be sold to Progress Energy Carolinas, according to a recent article in The Citizens-Times newspaper in Asheville.
