Solar-tober Renewable Energy

Solar-tober Renewable Energy

In October, UUCC’s Climate Team will be highlighting renewable energy for our homes.

Whether you rent or own, if you pay an electric utility bill (like BGE), you should be able to switch to solar (or wind) for your home energy. It takes about 30 minutes to sign up and reduce your greenhouse gasses by about 2 tons EVERY year. That’s about the same benefit as  buying an electric vehicle, but in this case you’d get money back (a 5% rebate on your electricity bill)!

Next Sunday after service, local solar company Neighborhood Sun will explain how “community solar” works and answer your questions about renewable energy.  (Downstairs in the Music Room on October 8 at 11:30AM.) With community solar, you do NOT install solar panels on your home.

If you are interested in renewable energy, join us for the Q&A on October 8 or stop by the climate table during coffee hour or at the Climate Fair after the worship service on Sunday, October 15. THANK YOU!

    We used Neighborhood Sun for a couple years before we got solar installed on our roof. We had to wait a long time for the project we were in to start producing power but I think they are able to get people in faster now. I highly recommend it, especially if you can’t put solar on your roof.
