A North Carolina church is going green by installing solar panels on their rooftop in an effort to save costs and become more environmentally friendly.
Highland United Methodist Church in Raleigh added 136 panels that will eventually provide about 15 percent of the church’s electricity. Church leaders hope their efforts will inspire others to also practice environmental stewardship.
“We would love to be a resource and model to other churches looking to make wise longer term decisions to be better stewards of that which has been entrusted to us,” Tom Lamb, facilities administrator at Highland told The Christian Post.
The panels, which cost $110,000 to install, are owned by a group of nine church members who formed a limited liability corporation to use the tax credits unique to solar panels. Lamb says they will gift the solar arrays to the church after they utilize the tax credits over the next 6 years.
