The Center for Energy Education (C4EE) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation and a center for renewable energy research, education, and workforce development for Halifax County and Eastern North Carolina. Created in response to the thriving renewable energy industry in North Carolina, the Center’s mission is to raise awareness of renewable energy and its importance locally, regionally, and globally. The Center is under construction just off US Highway 158 near Roanoke Rapids adjacent to a 20 MW solar farm developed by Geenex, LLC and now owned and operated by Duke Energy Renewables.
