Last week I met up with and photographed Hugh McDonald, president and CEO of Entergy Arkansas Inc., for Arkansas Business.
According to the article, McDonald, said the company is in the middle of a planned $2.4 billion investment in capital improvements in generation, distribution and transmission projects, which began in 2014 and will run to 2017.
Those infrastructure projects include deploying improved technologies. McDonald pointed to new generators that are 30 percent more efficient than the older technology as an example of such innovations. The utility is also deploying more renewable energy, including a proposed 81-megawatt solar energy plant in Arkansas County.
