Cal-Maine Foods Inc., a producer and distributor of recent shell eggs within the United States, is partnering with Entegrity Energy Partners to put in a 4.15 MW DC solar array on the firm’s egg manufacturing and processing operation in Searcy, Ark.

The 28-acre solar array is projected to offset roughly 91% of the power’s present electrical utilization and anticipated to boost the corporate’s energy self-sufficiency and reduce the Searcy location’s reliance on {the electrical} grid and scale back greenhouse fuel emissions.

Pending approval from the Arkansas Public Service Commission, Entegrity is anticipated to start building in the course of the second quarter of 2023.

“We are proud of our mission to be the most sustainable producer and reliable supplier of high-quality fresh shell eggs and egg products in the United States, demonstrating a ‘Culture of Sustainability’ in everything we do,” says Tim Thompson, vice chairman of operations of Cal-Maine Foods. “The team at Searcy is excited to support this project, and to be a part of the forward-looking operational story at Cal-Maine Foods. We believe that this solar investment helps augment the Searcy farm’s commitment to sustainability and helps us become more resilient in our ability to meet customers’ needs.”

“We have recently seen an increased drive for solar solutions in Arkansas given the constructive regulatory environment, attractive potential returns on investments and enhanced commitment to sustainability goals,” feedback Michael Parker, president of Entegrity. “For more than 15 years, and through nearly 350 projects, we have strived to partner with companies that share our vision of a sustainable future. With Cal-Maine Foods, we can deliver our energy expertise to help prepare the company for a more sustainable future. Their enthusiasm for this project speaks to their values and who they are as a company.”
