Scenic Hill Solar partners with L'Oréal USA to develop largest commercial PV project in Kentucky and third largest in Arkansas

Scenic Hill Solar (Little Rock, AR, U.S.) on September 20th, 2016 announced that it has partnered with L'Oréal USA to develop two large-scale commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in North Little Rock, Arkansas and Florence, Kentucky.

Construction of both solar PV projects is set to begin in late 2016 and both are expected to be operational by mid-2017.

“Scenic Hill Solar has partnered with L'Oréal USA to develop an 1.5 Megawatt DC solar power plant at L'Oréal USA's Florence, Kentucky manufacturing facility, making it Kentucky's largest commercial solar array,” said Bill Halter, CEO of Scenic Hill Solar.

“At L'Oréal USA's North Little Rock, Arkansas manufacturing facility, Scenic Hill Solar will develop an 1.2 Megawatt DC solar power plant, making it Arkansas's third largest commercial solar array and the state's fourth largest solar project.”

The Florence, Kentucky solar array will utilize approximately 5,000 PV panels mounted on the manufacturing facility's roof. The North Little Rock, Arkansas solar array will utilize approximately 4,000 PV panels mounted on single-axis tracking systems and will extend over 8 acres of land adjacent to L'Oréal's manufacturing facility.

These solar power arrays together with other announced initiatives will help L'Oréal in its plan to utilize 100 percent renewable electricity in its United States manufacturing facilities.
