Construction has started on the new 100 MW solar farm north of Lake Village. Once completed the farm will sit on 700 acres. It will tie with other solar farms under construction in Arkansas as the largest in the state.
During the construction phase the farm will hire up to 200 employees. Some will be brought in from the company and others will be local.
After construction ends, there will be two to three permanent workers.
It is estimated that the construction will take a year.
