Nixa is directly south of Springfield and it's largest suburb.

After years of delays and a change in
developers, construction has begun on what will be the largest solar farm in Missouri. In a news release, Nixa said a groundbreaking ceremony for the 72-acre project would be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday at 1565 W. Mt. Vernon St. The project, which includes 33,288 solar panels, is led by Gardner Capital of Springfield working with Nixa, Nixa Utilities and MC Power Companies of Independence, the release said. Nixa has agreed to buy 100 percent of the power generated by the farm. The plant is expected to meet about 9 percent of Nixa's yearly power demand while reducing the city's carbon footprint.
