Construction underway on new solar plant

PARAGOULD, Ark. (KAIT) - Work has started for the construction of the new Paragould Light Water and Cable solar power plant.

The 1.44-megawatt solar power plant will be located at Highway 358 and Highway 69.

A building has been removed, and a foundation is being removed.

Back in September, we reported on how it will help those living in Paragould.

Funding for the construction is provided through an economic development tax from the Economic Development Corporation of Paragould.

Once completed, the plant will produce enough energy to power 203 homes.

The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
