The City of Westminster has agreed to buy 254 kilowatts from community solar arrays SunShare plans to begin building in September in Adams and Jefferson counties.

The Denver-based company hopes to have the so-called “solar gardens” producing electricity by year’s end, SunShare spokeswoman Karen Gados said Thursday. SunShare was started in Colorado Springs, where it has built two arrays and is about to start a third, and SunShare moved its headquarters to Denver late last year after it was selected by Xcel to build eight solar gardens in the Denver area. The company still has an office in Colorado Springs.
