DUBLIN, Ga. -- A high school in middle Georgia is set to install 4,000 solar panels to reduce its energy costs by roughly 40 percent.

Dublin City Schools Tuesday announced that bonds from the Dublin-Laurens Development Authority will finance the plan to make Dublin High School middle Georgia's largest solar power provider.

Dublin City Schools Superintendent Chuck Ledbetter said the plan was 15 months in the making, and officials say the panels are set to be installed by the end of May.

The system will include an arrangement of rooftop solar panels, panels mounted on the ground and panels that will track the sun to generate the maximum amount of power for the school.

Dublin is about 55 miles southwest of Macon in Laurens County.
