Solar Power

AECC has long-term power purchase agreements for up to 14 megawatts of solar energy. The energy is provided through solar projects located throughout Arkansas.

However, the largest source is a 12-megawatt (AC) array located in the Highland Industrial Park in East Camden, which is is owned and operated by Silicon Ranch Corp. Aerojet Rocketdyne purchases the solar power for its 1,200-acre East Camden facility that was completed in late 2015 and is capable of generating enough electricity to power the equivalent of 2,400 single-family homes. Excess solar energy is released to AECC and dispatched to the wholesale power market.
