Kansas City Power & Light has announced plans for its first commercial-scale project to generate solar power. The plant, which would be located southeast of Kansas City in Greenwood, is expected to produce about 4,700 megawatt-hours of electricity each year, or about enough energy to power 440 homes.

KCP&L utility did not disclose the price of the project, which still requires approval from the Missouri Public Service Commission. The utility hopes to have the project completed by April.

The company owns the land as part of its Greenwood Energy Center, and it has employees and other infrastructure already on location.
