VERMONT INTERFAITH POWER & LIGHT Newsletter November, 2008
At a ceremony in October, a new array of solar panels was dedicated at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, given by the
White Flowers Foundation and the children of church member
Ann Flowers in honor of Ann's 80th birthday. Bishop Thomas
Ely was present to celebrate with the family, the congregation,
and church's rector, the Rev. Beth Hilgartner. The Bishop
spoke of every solar panel being "a sign of our commitment to
a sustainable future for this planet..." The photovoltaic panels
are connected to the power grid, and on sunny days, the electric
meter now runs backwards, giving the church credit for the
power used at night and on cloudy days.
I attended St James's, Piccadilly when I lived in London. In September, Reuters did a short video about churches and carbon footprints and it includes a look at St James's and its photovoltaic panels. Have a look here.
