SunEdison Inc. signed a 20-year power purchase agreement to sell almost 1 megawatt of solar to the city of Watervliet, New York.

The power will be used in all Watervliet-owned buildings, including city hall, the fire station and the library, Maryland Heights, Missouri-based SunEdison said in a statement Friday. The 868-kilowatt system is expected to offset more than 83 percent of the city-owned buildings’ electricity use, and should be operational this year.

Watervliet, about 7 miles northeast of Albany, was advised by Solomon Energy.
