The city of Mesa recently activated new solar power electric systems to provide electricity for two buildings and save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The two systems will serve Fire Station 212/Superstition Police Station and the Red Mountain Multigenerational Center, and the city installed solar panels to provide enough power to light up 77 homes for a year. As a result of the contract with SolarCity, the city anticipates the two systems will generate a cost savings of $660,000 over the course of 20 years.

Other city facilities that have solar power are the Fiesta District Police Station, Fire Stations 219 and 220, and the Red Mountain Park Softball Field. The Mesa City Council also approved the installation of a system at the Red Mountain Library.
