MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont and local officials in Montpelier are going to mark the start of construction on a 500-kilowatt solar array being built by the National Life Group insurance company on the edge of the city.

Gov. Peter Shumlin and company officials are planning to attend a Tuesday morning event at the site.

The project that is expected to go online by the end of the year is designed to generate more than 15 percent of National Life’s electrical needs.

Coupled with an existing solar array on the roof of the National Life building, it is expected to produce about 3 percent of the electricity used in the city of Montpelier every year.
