TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Dozens of solar panels have been installed and thousands more are planned at Topeka Colmery-O’Neil VA Medical Center as part of a green initiative expected to save more than $300,000 a year on electricity.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1xTA8Wn ) reports the $2.73 million project to install about 2,600 solar panels started earlier this month at the Topeka facility. It is part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Green Management Program.

The solar panels will produce about 700 kilowatts per day, or roughly 8 percent of the power on the Topeka campus.

The facility is one of three in the region where solar panels are being installed. The others are the Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center in Wichita and the Kansas City, Missouri, VA Medical Center.
