     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Kansas City is making an aggressive push
into the use of solar power.

     Officials have signed a deal to install equipment on 80 city
buildings to increase the city's use of solar power.

     The Kansas City Star reports ( ) the
project will include installing solar equipment on all of the
city's police and fire departments and most of its community

     Brightergy, a solar installer, and Kansas City Power & Light
will team up on the project, which is expected to be completed by
the end of the year.

     City officials say the solar units will supply 2.5 percent of
each building's power demands. The city estimates the project will
save $40,000 in the first year, with annual savings increasing in
the future.
