MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee will soon get a new solar array.
The city of Milwaukee's Environmental Collaboration Office and We Energies are working together to make it happen.
The eight-acre project will be located on a city-owned parcel near Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport.
When completed, it will be the biggest one in the city. And it won't cost Milwaukee taxpayers anything.
"We Energies will build and maintain the system," said Mayor Tom Barrett. "We will not be using taxpayers' funds for this project. With the cost of solar falling rapidly, it is now the most cost-effective source of electricity for meeting peak power demand during the day."
The project is expected to get underway this summer and wrap up by the end of the year.
