The Sacred Heart Green Team proposes the installation of photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of the parish office. Why? To play our part in the fight against climate change and, in the long run, save the Parish money from year to year.
Up to 36 panels will fit on the roof, satisfying about 60% of the office's electrical needs and saving the Parish over $1,500 per year.
Sacred Heart's solar panels will be connected to OPPD's grid using net metering. That means whenever our solar panels produce more electricity than the office can use, it will feed it back into OPPD's grid, and Sacred Heart will be credited on our electric bill. It's like running the meter backward. This means solar energy saves money for Sacred Heart that we can use for ministry and answer Pope Francis' call by pouring a little less carbon dioxide into the air.
