HOME SOLAR USE
As part of our commitment as church to do all we can to help care for this beautiful earth that God created, the Care for Creation Team is hosting an informational session on Home Solar Use. This will be an opportunity for you to learn about the potential benefits of solar as an alternative energy source for your home – both from experts and from home own-ers who have gone to solar. Below are quotes from three members of our congregation who have in-stalled solar at their homes:
“Solar is the cheapest energy source available and using it helps the earth.”
“It is wonderful to receive electric bills that say 'No Payment Due.' Before deciding 3 years ago to install solar I had a couple of people who I think are very smart look over the con-tract with me. They said 'Its a no-brainer; Do it!'”
“For me it is all about doing what is right; doing my small part to help reduce climate change. I feel really good about my decision to have solar.”
So come to the lunch/informational session on Sunday May 21 in the Vestry and hear more from peo-ple you know tell about their experiences. The session and lunch are free. You can read more about this event elsewhere in the Parish Visitor and then be sure to sign up.
The guest speaker will be Adam Burkett from Trinity Solar who will explain how solar energy works, how it can be beneficial to the planet and the homeowner, what is involved, and what to consider in deciding whether or not this alternative energy source is right for you and your home. Adam will allow plenty of time for questions to be answered. Some members of our congregation who now have solar will speak briefly about their personal experience. You don't have to commit to anything; just come to learn more about home solar usage.
