MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A Montgomery, Alabama-based electric authority announced that it has completed a deal to develop what it says will be one of the largest solar power arrays in the state.

The Alabama Municipal Electric Authority said Wednesday that Lightsource BP will finance, build and own the $125 million solar facility and deliver energy to AMEA under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

The project will deploy more than 350,000 solar panels over 800 rural acres (323.8 hectares) in rural Montgomery County when it is completed in 2021.
