$10M Solar Plant For Searcy Water Utilities

Searcy Water Utilities

Searcy Water Utilities has partnered with solar power developer Entegrity Energy Partners of Little Rock to build a 5.7-megawatt solar power plant to meet the utility’s electricity demand.

Entegrity plans to start work on the $10 million plant after receiving approval from Arkansas Public Service Commission, likely in November, said Sam Selig, director of the water division for Entegrity. The plant is expected to be completed in the first half of 2020.

In 2018, the utility started to look into solar power as a means to reduce electricity costs and selected Entegrity to provide solar power options for the utility. The Searcy Board of Public Utilities approved July 17 an agreement with the company that’s expected to save the utility $7 million over the life of the solar plant.      MORE
