"GALVESTON — Students and staff members at Satori Elementary School “flipped the switch,” Tuesday on 16 solar panels installed thanks to a grant from Green Mountain Energy.

The new panels will produce about 5,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year, saving the school about $3,000 annually, officials said.

Green Mountain funded the project through its Big Texas Sun Club Program, through which customers can allot an additional $5 or more on their monthly energy payment to pay for solar projects by nonprofit organizations.

Green Mountain was looking for other local solar-power projects to help fund, said Mark Lamping, vice president of sales.

“We invite people to apply through our Web site for similar grant funds,” he said.

“We’d love to help Galveston with other solar projects like this one. We just need to know where the needs are.” "
