The city of Hesperia, Calif., has its first LEED certified building thanks in part to funding from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The Hesperia Police Department’s new home is a 42,887 square-foot building that cost about $17 million to build. One of the building’s highlights is a solar array that provides shade in the parking lot but also generates enough electricity to meet about 70 percent of the Hesperia Police Department’s annual power needs.
