SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A 50-acre solar array proposed on vacant California airport land would provide enough electricity for 10,000 homes.

The Santa Rosa Press-Democrat says the project at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport is still two years away from construction.

The Sonoma County Water Agency says the renewable energy project would add jobs to the area.

The solar park would generate 20 megawatts of power.

The water agency has chosen SunEdison of Belmont to install 54,700 solar panels on the western side of the airport. The cost is about $100 million.
