Mena has been nationally recognized by LendEDU for having one of the highest percentages of solar-powered homes in the U.S.
Mena Mayor Seth Smith was informed last week that Mena has 23 solar-powered homes out of 7,207 total housing units, which means 0.32% of the homes in Mena are solar-powered and more eco-friendly.
LendEDU used housing data from GreatData (who derives their dataset from the U.S. Census) for over 25,000 American cities. Each city was ranked according to its percentage of solar-powered homes relative to its total number of homes.
The high percentage in Mena ranked #957 in the country and #4 in the state of Arkansas.
