Our solar panels were installed and dedicated in late 2022. Money was used from a bequest left to the church by the late Edna Dillon. Edna had longed hoped for solar panels on her church. The panels are dedicated to the Glory of God in her honor. Thank you to the members of St. Paul's green initiative who rekindled Edna's dream and the congregation for their support of the project.
Along with lowering our energy costs, the panels help our congregation live out calling to be good stewards of the world God has made. Along with supplying energy for the church, on sunny days, the panels over-produce our own energy needs and feed renewable energy back onto the grid for our neighbors.
