1 Megawatt Star City Solar Power Project Gets Underway


STAR CITY, AR (Ben Caxton) — Ground was broken Tuesday on a new one-megawatt solar array in Star City. The project by C&L Electric Cooperative and Today’s Power of Little Rock will consist of 3800 photovoltaic panels covering eight acres of land and is one of about two-dozen built by Today’s Power which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arkansas Electric Cooperatives Inc. of Little Rock. C&L serves about 22,000 meters over 4,400 miles of power lines in eight south Arkansas counties and hopes to use the power from the new generating facility to help to offset summer peak demand.
