MONTPELIER — Vermont is going to use solar power to run 10 state office buildings, including all seven of its prisons, officials said Wednesday.

The deal between the state and the company AllEarth Renewables calls for solar installations that will serve the prisons as well as the Pavilion Office Building in Montpelier, where the governor’s office is located, and state offices in Brattleboro and Bennington. In some cases, the installations will provide all the electricity for the buildings.

Gov. Peter Shumlin said the project furthered his long-term goal of getting 90 percent of the state’s energy needs from renewable power sources by 2050.
