Entergy Arkansas, Inc. Key Developments

Entergy Arkansas Seeks Approval for Solar Facility in Arkansas, US

Entergy Arkansas is seeking approval for a photovoltaic solar energy generating facility in Grand Prairie, Arkansas County, in the US state of Arkansas. The company has reached a power purchase agreement with NextEra Energy Resources, which will build the proposed 81MW solar facility. The project will feature an array of stationary solar panels covering nearly 500 acres and it will generate clean energy that will be enough to power approximately 13,000 homes. The solar plant will be connected to Entergy's transmission grid by mid-2019. In addition to this solar project, Entergy Arkansas plans to invest around $2.4 billion in generation, transmission and distribution improvements to the state's electrical infrastructure through 2017.

Entergy Arkansas Inc. Wins $9.67 Million Federal Contract

Entergy Arkansas Inc. was awarded a $9,667,141 federal contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Memphis, Tennessee, for the construction of a distribution metering point for step-down transformers to increase capacity at DeWitt substation. Place of performance will be in Reydell, Arkansas.

Entergy Arkansas Announces New Transmission Operations Center in Little Rock

Entergy Arkansas is breaking ground on a new $23-million Transmission Operations Center in Little Rock that will be one of two twin centers in the corporation's four-state service area. The 25,000-square-foot building will be a "nerve center" where employees monitor the status of the transmission system, coordinate line outages for maintenance or repair and remotely operate switches and breakers at substations. One of the current facilities is near the Gulf of Mexico and is more susceptible to storms and hurricanes. Moving those functions further from the Gulf allows transmission to reduce operational risks from such events. The new centers will also be hardened to withstand EF5 tornadoes. Consolidating the facilities will also result in significant savings, as maintaining two facilities costs less than maintaining six. The buildings are scheduled to be complete in summer 2016.
