SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Two large solar farms would be built on the grounds of Sacramento International Airport under a plan that would save the facility $15 million on energy over the next two decades.

The Sacramento Bee ( reports that the seven megawatts generated by the project would serve most airport operations.

Airport officials plan to ask the county Board of Supervisors in April for permission to sign a contract with a solar company for two 15-acre fields of solar photovoltaic panels.

The company would sell the electricity to the airport at a reduced rate.
