Entergy Arkansas, LLC, (NYSE: ETR) and NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NEE) announced today plans to build a 100-megawatt solar energy facility in White County near Searcy. This project, pending approval by the Arkansas Public Service Commission, will be the largest utility-owned solar facility in the state and the first to feature a battery for storing solar power. This will be Entergy’s third large-scale solar project in Arkansas and would allow the company to offer Entergy Arkansas customers a total of 281 megawatts of solar energy, enough to power about 45,000 homes.

A result that allows Entergy Arkansas to continue delivering long-term, cost-effective power.
Entergy Arkansas reached an agreement with organizations opposed to the use of coal and other fossil fuels to generate electricity that allows the company to secure nearly 50 years’ economic benefit from each of two coal-fired plants in Arkansas. The agreement allows the company to move forward with plans to replace these older generating plants with newer, highly efficient generation resources for Arkansas — a result that allows Entergy Arkansas to continue delivering long-term, cost-effective power to customers. The deal also provides a predictable transition for employees of the plants, a positive economic result for customers and an end to ongoing lawsuits over the use of coal at the plants.
