Beth Shalom Solar Initiative

Objectives:
  • Reduce Beth Shalom’s electricity bill by approximately $14,000 annually.
  • Return electricity back into our local electric-generating grid.
  • Generate solar renewable energy credits (SRECs) to provide revenue for Beth Shalom.
  • Promote other congregational efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (e.g., energy audit, move to LED lighting, etc.).
  • Provide an educational example for our membership and our larger East End community (e.g., link to STEM education in our local schools).
  • Community leadership.  Provide a template for other large and medium-sized area non-profit institutions considering solar power.
  • Support the City’s Climate Action Plan 3.0 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 50% by 2030.
  • Tikkun Olam, repair the world.
