Energy purchases will take center stage Tuesday when Iola City Council members meet for their regular meeting.

The Council has in front of it an option to buy and install a pair of used diesel-powered generators — capable of producing a combined 4 megawatts of energy per hour — at a cost of about $1.1 million.

Council members also will further discuss whether to enter an agreement with Westar to have the utility giant develop a solar project in Iola, then sell the solar panels to the city in about eight years for $3.7 million. Scott Shreve, Iola’s energy consultant, will be on hand to discuss a related feasibility study.
