SPRINGFIELD (AP) — A Springfield utility says fewer than 200 customers subscribed to its new solar power program.

The Springfield News-Leader reports (http://sgfnow.co/1LE3KfX ) 184 City Utilities customers subscribed to 1,600 kilowatts produced by the Greene County solar farm. That's just under a third of the 4,950 kilowatts that were available.

Sept. 30 was the close of the yearlong sign-up period for the Solar Initiative. The solar farm east of Springfield started producing power in June 2014.

The initiative allows customers to buy blocks of the output capacity of the system. The power produced by the farm feeds into CU's electric grid, and isn't directly transmitted to subscribers. The utility hoped to attract customers interested in supporting renewable energy but hesitant to install their own solar panels.

CU says it's pleased with the turnout.
