    PUTNEY - Officials in the Vermont town of Putney have chosen a company to build a new solar array that would provide electricity for the town's buildings.

    The Brattleboro Reformer reported that Integrated Solar is building a 500-kilowatt solar array in Westminster. Putney will get about 185 kilowatts to provide power for Town Hall, the fire station, garage, public library and wastewater treatment plant.

    The town expects to save about $4,000 every year by buying the solar power from the developers of the solar array.

    The town will be purchasing the power from Green Lantern Capital, an investment firm that will own the equipment and maintain it. The town has the option to purchase the equipment in the future.

    The array is not expected to produce electricity until next spring.
