GLOUCESTER, Va. (AP) -- Dominion Virginia Power has completed the installation of the state's largest rooftop solar system.

The solar array is atop the Canon Environmental Technology plant in Gloucester. In all, more than 2,000 solar panels have been planted on the roof of the building.

The solar panels will generate more than 500 kilowatts of electricity, or enough to power 125 homes.

The rooftop solar power system will be dedicated on Tuesday, Earth Day.
