PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The Pierre City Commission has paved the way for what officials say will be the biggest solar energy project in South Dakota.

It also will be the first solar energy project for Missouri River Energy Services, which provides nearly half of the city's power.

The city will lease 5 acres of land to a Minnesota-based company that will install solar panels which will produce power for Pierre's municipal electrical system.

The project will cost $2 million. It's expected to be operating next year.
