Evergy completes Arkansas city’s first solar project

Evergy completed construction of a 1.92-MW solar system in Paragould, Arkansas that started commercial operation this month. The array uses bifacial solar panels in combination with Schletter single-axis trackers — the first Schletter trackers to be installed in the United States — optimizing the efficiency of the solar array over its lifetime. The 4,692-panel array will generate about 3.4 million kWh annually.

“At Evergy, our goal was to ensure that the energy generated from the new solar array was the lowest cost peak power resource in [Paragould Light Water & Cable’s] energy portfolio. We are excited to be partnering with PLWC in bringing clean energy solutions to the customers of Paragould,” said Lloyd Jackson, managing director, Evergy Energy Partners.

Paragould, a city with more than 26,000 residents, started planning the solar project in 2020 and selected Evergy through a request for proposal process.

“We are proud to bring solar-generated power to the citizens of Paragould, and to do so with Evergy, a trusted partner for 18 years,” said Darrell Phillips, CEO of PWLC. “PLWC continues on a progressive track with our recent 1-GIG internet launch, and now we’re generating solar energy in an exciting new way. We’re building superior infrastructure in our city and providing reliable products for our friends and neighbors.”
