A groundbreaking will be held today for a 2-megawatt solar array from which the Toledo Zoo will buy enough power to supply about 30 percent of its electricity needs.
Walbridge-based Rudolph/ Libbe Inc. will design and build the project on a 22-acre brownfield site off the Anthony Wayne Trail northeast of the zoo.
Rudolph/ Libbe said the project will create about 60 construction jobs. Local union labor will be used.
The project is to be completed by mid-2014.
