Solar installation is a ‘go’ at St. Anthony Park Lutheran Church

When the proposed solar installation on the roof of St. Anthony Park Lutheran Church was reported in the Bugle’s August issue, it had not yet been voted on by the congregation.

That vote was taken Sunday, Sept. 20, and the positive response was unanimous. Panels for the $120,000 project have been ordered and installation could begin as in late November or early December. Nearby Innovative Power Systems (IPS), 1413 N. Hunting Valley Road, will be handling the project.

Church members of all ages are enthused about how the project is a good example of the congregation’s concern for the environment. And the resultant energy savings the congregation will experience added to the members’ motivation to approve it. The congregation had already contributed or pledged enough funds to cover the upcoming cost before the project was voted on.

Watch the southern exposure of the church roof in a month or so. Give thanks to the sun for heating and light—and cutting a local church’s energy bill.
