The St. Louis County Government Services Center is testing out new ways to go green.

The County Board unanimously approved the purchase of three different types of solar panels Tuesday.

It is part of a research project with Minnesota Power.

The panels will test how the different systems perform on an urban office building, and then St. Louis County will keep the equipment after the project.

Officials say it will save over $100,000.
