    Arkansas Added as the 19th US State with Utility-Scale Operations for EDPR NA

    Blytheville, Arkansas, May 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDP Renewables North America (EDPR NA), a leading renewable energy developer and a top five renewable energy owner and operator in the United States, is proud to launch its Crooked Lake Solar Park near Blytheville in Mississippi County, Arkansas. The 175-megawatt (MW) project will generate enough energy to power the equivalent of 30,000 Arkansas homes each year.

    Crooked Lake Solar Park will directly support Arkansas’ electric grid and is built on land leased by local landowners who recognize the benefits of hosting a solar project and believe the economic impact it’ll bring to the city and greater county, complimenting the area’s agricultural heritage.

    Crooked Lake will support more than 330 construction jobs and six permanent jobs dedicated to the ongoing operations and routine maintenance of the project. It will disburse an estimated $106.2 million to local landowners, pay an estimated $12.4 million in taxes to local governments throughout the project’s life, and invest millions of dollars in the local economy over the next several decades. It will also save more than 222 million gallons of water each year that would have otherwise been consumed by conventional generation sources for equivalent energy capacity.

    “We’re proud to continue our expansion in the South with a focus on serving the clean energy needs of Arkansas,” stated Sandhya Ganapathy, CEO of EDP Renewables North America. “By providing sustainable energy to Mississippi County and the surrounding area, we are generating economic growth and grid stability for generations to come in the region.”

    A special focus was placed on STEM education and local community impact, utilizing the construction of the project to educate K-12 students at Armorel School District and Blytheville School District on the benefits of wind and solar through school visits and science-related challenges organized in partnership with KidWind. In addition, the project team - alongside groups like 4H and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated - volunteered and donated to several organizations revitalizing Blytheville and broader Mississippi County, including the Adopt a Block Initiative and Mississippi County Union Mission.
