Power Picture Looking Up For Arkansas Co-Ops

Tapping the sun continues to be a growing industry in Arkansas, with three additional electric cooperatives moving ahead with solar arrays to provide local power generation for consumer-members.


With the additions by Clay County Electric Cooperative, C&L Electric Cooperative, and Southwest Arkansas Electric Cooperative, 13 of the Natural State’s 17 electric co-ops will be using solar or storage projects developed by Today’s Power, Inc. (NRECA Associate Member, todayspower.com), a wholly owned subsidiary of Arkansas Electric Cooperatives.

The three co-ops’ chief executives, Clay County General Manager, David Smith, C&L CEO/General Manager Greg Smith, and Southwest Arkansas President and CEO Wayne Whitaker, all cited the economic and environmental benefits of solar assets, as well as their co-op’s local focus.
