Hop production

Washington,Oregon, Idaho..........major production areas in the US.
Recently read that State of NC looking into planting/ cultivating in the western part of the state (after experiencing the hop shortage).
How long might it take to become a viable production area and what might be the expectation for the hop characteristics grown in this area.....or would the growing environment impact greatly the flavor profile of the hop......?
