ELKHART — Baugo Community Schools this week broke ground on a solar energy project, a move that officials say will produce hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in energy savings.

The project will power Jimtown High School and all the facilities around the high school on the south side of the campus. It will also power the district’s administrative building and the high school’s gym.
