LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The largest electric utility in Kansas has begun a $200,000 solar panel project in Lawrence.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1frYpsI ) Topeka-based Westar Energy is installing 160 solar panels at its maintenance facility and service center in southeast Lawrence.

The utility also is installing solar panels on buildings it owns in Manhattan and Shawnee.

At the Lawrence facilities, Westar is installing the panels in various locations and at a variety of angles to test their efficiency. The public will also be able to use a company website to monitor how the solar panels are performing.

Westar also operates a large, coal-fired power plant outside Lawrence.
