Solar Update #2

On Friday, September 18th, Our solar installation began and by the end of Saturday the contractors had completed the anchoring system and installed the rails in preparation for the panels, which LightSource Energy and Elemental Energy will begin installing on Monday, September 28th. We are so excited to see this work begin and look forward to the weeks ahead and the flipping of the solar switch for energy from the Sun. We will have reached our next stage of commitment to a more sustainable future through the use of renewable energy.

As we mentioned in our last update, plans are being made for celebrations and the ribbon cutting ceremony will take place either on site or virtually on Friday, October 16th. And then, if we are fortunate to be able to gather on Sunday, October 18th, we will have our own congregational celebration of the completion of our solar project. We are hopeful that we will be able to gather, but if not, we will have a virtual celebration focusing on our solar project . Stay tuned for more details about these celebrations as we get closer to the dates and stay tuned for more exciting news and more pictures.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support with this project. We couldn’t do it without your support.
