MADISON, Wis. - The solar farm planned at the Dane County Airport is getting a little bigger.

County Executive Joe Parisi and Madison Gas & Electric announced that the solar farm will be 58 acres, instead of 41, on Wednesday.

The farm will consist of 31,000 solar panels that generate 9 megawats of power, and save the county about $137,000 per year.

Construction for the solar farm will begin in the spring and should be competed by the fall of next year.
