Entegrity of Little Rock is building a 28-acre solar array for Cal-Maine Foods Inc.'s egg production and processing facility in Searcy, the companies announced.
The 4.15-megawatt, direct-current array is projected to offset approximately 91% of the facility’s current electrical usage and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Pending approval from the Arkansas Public Service Commission, Entegrity is expected to begin construction during the second quarter of 2023.
"The team at Searcy is excited to support this project, and to be a part of the forward-looking operational story at Cal-Maine Foods," Tim Thompson, vice president of operations at Cal-Maine, said in a news release. "We believe that this solar investment helps augment the Searcy farm’s commitment to sustainability and helps us become more resilient in our ability to meet customers’ needs."
