PIGEON KEY, Fla. - One Florida island community is taking advantage of one of the state's most abundant resources: the sun.
Officials in Pigeon Key Island flipped the switch Friday, converting almost all of its electrical system to solar energy.
The 105-foot by 11-foot solar panel will provide 95 percent of their electrical needs.
Officials on the 5.3-acre island said the system should pay for itself in less than five years.
