SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - The city of Sparks is tapping the power of the sun to light up the ball fields at the biggest sports complex in town.

Officials for the city and NV Energy plan the formal dedication of 200 kilowatts of solar power panels on Monday at Golden Eagle Regional Park.

NV Energy conservation manager John Hargrove says it will cut the city's annual electric costs by more than $40,000.

He says the installation costs will be offset in part by nearly $1 million worth of rebates Sparks is receiving through its participation in the utility's "SolarGenerations" program.
