NextEra starts construction on largest solar project in Arkansas

A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources and Entergy Arkansas announced the start of construction of Arkansas’ largest universal, utility-scale solar energy project — the Chicot Solar Energy Center. The Chicot Solar Energy Center, when complete, will be bigger than the Stuttgart Solar Energy Center, which came online in 2018 as the state’s largest universal solar energy project at that time. “We are pleased that Entergy Arkansas and NextEra Energy Resources have partnered together to bring more solar power to the state,” said Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. “Utility-scale solar keeps electric rates low, and the clean, renewable energy it provides can be a catalyst for economic growth. This project is great for Southeast Arkansas and is yet another reason our future looks bright in the Natural State.”
