ST. GEORGE — Solar energy is in the cards for St. George Elementary School, which will soon have 85% of its electricity usage powered by the sun.

On Thursday, the St. George District 258 School Board approved the transfer of $900,000 into the district’s capital project fund to pay for ground-mounted solar panels to be installed to the south of the school’s softball field.

In total, $620,000 is being moved from the education fund and $280,000 is being moved from the operation and maintenance fund. Additionally, $300,000 of funds already tabbed for capital projects will go toward the solar panels.
