How can your church play a role in improving the world around you? Climate change affects all of us, and many faith communities want to be good environmental stewards. If you own a church building (or any other place of worship, including temples, mosques, and synagogues), there’s always more that needs to be done to improve the well-being of your community. One of the easiest ways to create a more sustainable, energy-efficient environment is to install renewable energy sources, including solar power systems. In addition to fostering a more green-centric community, renewable energy for churches and other places of worship can decrease your utility bill for good.
There are countless small steps that we’re told to take to minimize our impact on the environment and lower our utility bill—turning off the lights, don’t run water for too long, unplugging equipment when it’s not in use—but those small tasks don’t necessarily equate to a significantly cheaper monthly fee. If you want to make a big impact on your building’s financial situation and increase energy efficiency, solar power for churches is a simple yet effective way to make a meaningful change.
