SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Springfield utility is planning to partner with two companies to build what would be the largest solar farm in Missouri.

City Utilities says it will work with Solexus Development in St. Louis and Strata Solar of North Carolina to build the 4.95 megawatt system, with construction to begin next spring.

The Springfield News-Leader reports the companies expect to finalize a contract Monday. The system will be built on 57 acres next to an existing City Utilities generation station near Springfield.

Under the 25-year agreement, Solexus will develop the project and Strata Solar will build, finance and operate it. City Utilities' will connect the system to existing infrastructure, then buy the solar power the system produces.

The system is expected to produce about 9.6 million kilowatt hours per year.

The Clayton School District started a large solar project Tuesday. Eight solar panels were installed on six separate buildings.

Officials say the project will produce over $650,000 in utility savings over the next 20 years. In addition to a few administrative buildings, panels are also being placed on Wydown Middle School, Captain Elementary, and Clayton High School.

Students will be able to monitor the activity of the panels through touch screen monitors installed in the schools.
