Evangelical Free Church of Green Valley has gone solar! The church's new 47kW system, comprised of 144 SunPower 327w solar modules, will annually generate 90,000 kWh of clean electricity, providing the Evangelical Free Church of Green Valley with 99% or more of their yearly electrical needs.
Missions Board member Dana Beckhorn says:
"About two years ago Evangelical Free Church of Green Valley identified that our growth outstripped our physical facility. We hold two serveries during the summer and three when our winter visitors join us. Several options were looked at, and the final decision was to add a new 3000 sq. ft. office area to our current facility, expand the parking lot, and reduce our utility bill by adding solar.
The old office space will soon be combined with the sanctuary area, adding an additional 80 seats to the church. The new office area accommodates all of our pastors and support personnel in one building. The expanded parking lot provides an additional 80 parking spaces. The solar system was added as a long term investment, hedging against increasing electricity costs. It is designed to provide for most of our electricity needs including the new office area. We look forward to significantly reducing our electricity costs and being a green facility.”
"The Evangelical Free Church of Green Valley believes that the most significant relationship you can have in life is with the person of Jesus Christ. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you’re invited to discover with us how a relationship with Jesus Christ can change your life. The Evangelical Free Church is a warm, friendly, caring congregation; offering many ministry opportunities to help you discover all that God has for you"
