Empowering customers and their futures

Bank OZK is committed to protecting clients’ and the world's resources with smart, strategic and sustainable practices. It's why we invested $6 million to build an 11,000-panel solar power plant to offset the electricity usage of our corporate headquarters and up to 40 branch locations across Arkansas.

"An industry innovator, Bank OZK has a bold vision for the future, which includes a strong commitment to sustainable and clean energy. This solar power plant will allow us to reduce our carbon footprint by 160,000 tons over the next 30 years."

— Tim Hicks,
Chief Financial Officer


Our 247,000-square-foot state-of-the-art corporate HQ includes:

  • Programmable LED lights to eliminate unnecessary energy usage
  • Low-flow plumbing to conserve water
  • Energy-efficient HVACs and a light-colored roof to minimize heat load
  • On-site water collection systems
  • Centralized recycling receptacles
  • Filtered water stations and bank-provided stainless steel cups to reduce plastic waste
  • Electric vehicle charging
  • Native landscaping that minimizes water use, pesticides and energy-inefficient upkeep

We've also outfitted our new and renovated branch locations with LED lighting, motion sensor switches and high-efficiency HVACs.


Bank OZK's $6-million solar power plant in Stuttgart, Arkansas will be the third-largest commercial solar facility dedicated to a private sector customer in the state. It is the largest investment in renewable energy by an Arkansas-based financial services company. The 11,000-panel, 4.8-megawatt array, currently under construction by Scenic Hill Solar, will generate more than 8.1 million kilowatts of electricity annually.
