July 29 (Renewables Now) - McKinstry, the US provider of consulting, construction and energy services, on Tuesday announced four solar projects with municipal governments in western Arkansas, which have a combined capacity of 2.78 MW.
In Sebastian County, McKinstry will install two solar arrays with a combined capacity of 1.18 MW, which will produce 2.7 million kWh of power annually, covering 77% of the county's power consumption.
In Miller County, the company will deliver a 600-kW photovoltaic (PV) system and a number of facility improvement measures.
In Nashville, McKinstry will install a 1-MW solar park, which will produce 2.1 million kWh of energy annually, covering 54% of the city's power consumption.
The company expects to complete all four projects in 2021.
These projects are partly a result of the Arkansas Energy Office’s (AEO) Arkansas Energy Performance Contracting (AEPC) programme or The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS).
