U.S. largest solar power plant closer to reality

A Chicago-based utility has moved closer to building the largest urban solar power plant in the United States, the Chicago-based Exelon Corporation said Monday.


Exelon is one of the nations's largest electric utilities. The Exelon solar power plant would consist of more than 30,000 solar panels on a site in Chicago's West Pullman neighborhood.


Exelon says it would generate enough electricity to power about1,200 homes.


The Chicago city council has approved a lease for the vacant industrial site, which is considered a brownfield.


The plant may have local support, but it will still take a major federal commitment to make it happen.


Exelon says the project depends on government guarantees for some 50 million U.S. dollars in loans, about 80 percent of the cost.
