Entergy Arkansas plans to build a 100-megawatt solar farm in Chicot County, the utility said in a filing with the Arkansas Public Service Commission.
The Chicot Solar Project will be located near Lake Village, Entergy said. It will be the largest solar farm in Arkansas when it is completed.
Entergy will work with NextEra Energy Inc., which will build the Chicot Solar Project. NextEra is the largest generator of solar and wind power in the world.
The project will cover 850 acres and will connect to the existing Lake Village Bagby to Reed 115-kilovolt transmission line.
NextEra also is building an 81 megawatt solar farm near Stuttgart for Entergy.
