Dublin High School of Dublin City Schools will soon implement 1 megawatt of solar energy. The 4,000 panel solar power plant will be the largest in Central Georgia and is expected to save the school 40 percent in energy costs.
Dublin City Schools Superintendent Chuck Ledbetter told 13WMAZ, "The facility will be built and owned by private business and the school system will lease the solar power plant, saving us money in energy costs."
The original plan was developed more than 15-months ago by German based MAGE SOLAR, which has a plant located in Laurens County.
Members of the Public Service Commission will attend a groundbreaking Monday at the Dublin High School auditorium.
