The Board of Education approved the purchase power agreements for Solar Panel installation at the June Board of Education meeting.
Site work has already begun at Lombard Middle School, Galesburg High School, and Lincoln Education Center.
Solar Panels for Galesburg High School will be located behind Gale Elementary and Rose Hoben. The practice soccer fields that were currently located at this location will be moved.
The Solar Panel Company, Clean Energy Design Group Inc, is working with Galesburg CUSD #205 to create a new soccer practice field, that was previously located behind Gale and Rose Hoben. According to District #205 Athletic Director, Eric Matthews, "The Solar Panel company has agreed to create a new field, one with storage, scoreboard and easy accessibility. We expect this project to be ready to go for next fall, when the boy season starts."
The girls soccer program currently practices in F&M Stadium during their season, which allows for extra time to complete the project.
