Pulaski County solar array on schedule for completion by end of year
PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (May 4, 2023)- Solar Array for Pulaski County is on schedule for its anticipated completion by the end of the year.
Today’s Power Inc. (TPI) officials said the racking installation is almost finished, electrical work and fencing are underway, and transformers are expected this month.
“Today’s Power, Inc. is excited about the progress in the completion of the 4.6MW solar project to support Pulaski County. As a significant portion of the construction work is nearing completion, we are working toward Commercial Operation to commence Q4 of 2023 ” said Derek Dyson, CEO of Today’s Power, Inc.
In November 2022, Pulaski County held a groundbreaking for the solar array at the Little Rock Port Authority, which when completed, will save the County approximately $250,000 a year in current electric costs.
After completion, the 4.7MW solar array, in conjunction with Pulaski County’s other site located by the Pulaski County Detention Center, will supply approximately 90% of the County’s electric needs with clean, renewable solar power.
