Ozarks Electric Co-op Partners With Today’s Power For Solar Energy Project
LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) — Ozarks Electric Cooperative in Fayetteville recently reached an agreement with Today’s Power, Inc. to provide a one-megawatt AC solar array for the energy provider’s solar power generation facility.
The Springdale-based facility, which is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2016, will involve an array of about 4,080 panels that encompass about four acres on a six acre site. The output of the energy produced by the array could provide for the power needs of up to 160 homes.
According Ozarks Electric Coop Vice President of Engineering Troy Scarbrough, the cooperative chose the TPI product because of its safety attributes and unique architecture of the solar panels.
The project will not be subsidized by members who choose not to participate.
