A solar energy farm that is expected to produce enough electricity to power 1,200 homes will be built at Indianapolis International Airport.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the project will cost an estimated $35 million to $45 million to build. The array is expected to be operational by the middle of 2012. Its power will be bought by Indianapolis Power and Light Co.

The Star reports the 41,000-panel solar array will be built by a partnership of 3 Indianapolis companies.

The Star said about 85 construction jobs are expected to be created and that the long-term operation of the array is expected to create about 18 positions.

Airport officials said Tuesday that no public money is involved in development of the solar farm.
