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 locations. The single-axis solar array is made of 11,265 solar panels and will produce enough electricity to power the bank’s new corporate headquarters in Little Rock and up to 40 Bank OZK locations throughout central Arkansas.
It’s 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 shrinking our carbon footprint and offsetting our electricity usage, Bank OZK continues its commitment to the environment with this new source of clean and sustainable energy. The solar plant is another great example of how Bank OZK is a leader in the financial services sector.”
This solar panel array is expected to significantly shrink the Bank’s carbon footprint.
