Arkansas regional bank powers locations with 4.8-MW solar array
Scenic Hill Solar managed the construction of a 4.8 MW solar project in Stuttgart, Arkansas, to account for electricity supply to Bank OZK’s regional sites. Made from 11,265 solar panels, the single-axis solar panel will produce enough electricity to power the bank’s new headquarters in Little Rock and up to 40 Bank OZK locations in downtown Arkansas.
It is believed to be the state’s largest commercial solar facility for a single private sector customer.
“After several months of construction, Bank OZK is pleased to announce that our solar power plant is fully operational,” said Tim Hicks, Chief Credit and Administrative Officer. “By reducing our carbon footprint and offsetting our electricity consumption, Bank OZK remains committed to the environment with this new source of clean and sustainable energy. The solar power plant is another great example of how Bank OZK is leading the way in financial services.”
This solar array is expected to significantly reduce the bank’s carbon footprint.
