Brightergy, a leading Midwest solar development and finance firm, was awarded a competitively bid $1.1 million contract to install a 105.6 kW solar array at the Clayton Police Station. 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 needs of the parking garage as well as offset a portion of the main building's needs.
The solar panels will be sourced from US-based Sunpower Corp., while the steel structure will be manufactured by US-based Crider Americas. Brightergy will collaborate with local St. Louis electrical contractor, Kaemmerlen Electric, for installation support.
“We are very excited to be working with the City and our other partners on this project,” says Brightergy Principal, Ryan Gardner. “Clayton’s commitment to green energy not only saves taxpayer dollars but also puts many local St. Louisans to work.”
The array is part of Clayton’s larger commitment to clean energy and the health of their citizens. Clayton was the first Missouri community to achieve the EPA’s Green Power Community Designation. The addition of this project was instrumental in helping the city retain that designation.
“Clayton has been a regional leader in green energy solutions as the first city in the area to achieve the Green Power Community initiative and our commitment to LEED Silver certified public buildings,” said Clayton Mayor Linda Goldstein. “The use of solar on our new police station reaffirms our focus on using the latest technologies to keep us energy efficient.”
