Entergy Louisiana customers are now receiving power from the largest solar facility in the state.
The Chicot Solar Energy Center began operation Sept. 30. The facility has a peak capacity of 100 megawatts of energy powered by the sun, enough to power 18,000 Entergy Arkansas customers’ homes.
Entergy Arkansas estimates the 61 customers across the state subscribed to the company’s Solar Energy Purchase Option - Option B will save $60 million over the next 18.5 years by purchasing power generated at the Stuttgart Solar Energy Center.
Building on our longtime legacy of environmental stewardship, Entergy announced a commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. We intend to accomplish this while continuing to ensure grid reliability and affordability for our customers.
