Construction of the Searcy Solar power generating plant is about 42% complete. When the facility goes online by the end of this year, 100 megawatts of emission-free power will begin flowing from the plant’s more than 350,000 solar panels onto the Entergy Arkansas electric grid.
Electricity has become so ingrained in our daily lives, we hardly think about it – unless the power is out. Not only do we take for granted the convenience of working lights and appliances at home, but also that our office equipment, cell phones, and other wireless devices we rely on are energized and can be charged when we need them. When they are not, it can bring our normal lives to an abrupt halt.
