Brightergy, a solar development and finance firm, recently was awarded a $1.1 million contract to install a 105.6 kilowatt solar array at the new Clayton police station at 10 S. Brentwood Blvd.

The solar array will be mounted on an elevated steel structure above the police station's parking garage. The system will provide all the energy for the parking garage as well as offset a portion of the main building's energy needs, officials said.

Clayton was the first Missouri community to achieve the EPA's Green Power Community designation. The addition of the police project was instrumental in helping the city retain that designation.

Mayor Linda Goldstein said the use of solar on the new station "reaffirms our focus on using the latest technologies to keep us energy efficient."
