California State University-Fullerton will soon be powered by the sun.

The school is set to begin installing solar panels later this spring and hopes to have them running by the fall semester.

The panels will eventually supply 7 to 8 percent of the electrical power the university uses daily, which could save millions of dollars in utility bills down the road.

Cal State Fullerton is getting a loan to fund the $6-million project and hopes to have it paid off in about eight years.
