One year ago our brand new solar panel system was turned on. We had placed 200 solar panels on the south-facing sanctuary roof, 40 helping to power the sanctuary and 160 the Guildhall. Of the 200 panels, 150 were paid for by the large number of church members who bought panels or fractions of panels to help us achieve this goal. Thank you! The remainder will be paid for in five yearly installments by the State of California, through the California State Initiative rebate program. The system is working very well. During the past year our panels produced more than 86,000 kilowatt hours of energy, saving us over $12,000 in electrical bills from the year before. If we take into account rising rates, we have saved even more than that over what we would otherwise have had to pay. These savings are directly budget relieving, allowing us to use our funds for other purposes. The solar panels also reduce our church's carbon footprint, equivalent to planting about 1300 trees. So the project will not only save us money every year, but will help us "live in harmony with all creation". Again, thanks to all those who made this possible!
