Sunshine on our shoulders

PUCC has participated in the Duke energy rebate program for solar panels. We installed 160 solar panels on our somewhat south-facing roof, which will produce  over 69,000 kW per year.
It is estimated that the panels will produce about 80 % of our electricity needs per year.
A capital campaign in our congregation raised $20,000 to offset the cost of the panels. We will save a significant amount in electricity costs and these costs won’t rise at the rate we experienced before installation.
