Maui County is seeking contractors to install more than 1,000 solar panels on rooftops of county buildings to save the government money.

The 2009-2010 county Cost of Government Commission set a goal of achieving $1.5 million in savings annually compared to the county's current electricity spending of about $25 million a year.
