Vectren has started working on two solar farms in Evansville this week with a projection of about 8,500 photovoltaic panels to be erected to help turn sunlight into electricity.  

One of the solar farms is located near Oak Hill Cemetery in Evansville and the other one is near North Junior-Senior High School. The solar farms will be able to generate power to 600 homes annually.
