The City of Westport, Conn. is preparing to install a roof full of solar photovoltaic panels on the shelter at its Saugatuk commuter train station.

The city just needs approval from the Connecticut Board of Transportation, which meets Thursday.

Once the project is approved, the city will receive $109,000 from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund to pay for $97,000 worth of solar panels and two electric-vehicle charging stations.
