Marietta, GA, United States, 2009/01/28 - Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta (NWUUC) announces that on Friday, January 30th, Soenso Energy will install 20 solar photovoltaic (PV) modules on our sanctuary roof.
Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta is pleased to announce that on Friday, January 30th, 2009, Soenso Energy of Marietta, Georgia, will complete the installation of 20 Schuco-USA solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, constituting the first phase of a 108 solar module array. The Congregation is combining solar energy and energy conservation to reach its ultimate goal of zero carbon emission. The Congregation undertook this project under the leadership of its Earth Ministry Team and in reverence of Unitarian Universalists' seventh principle, respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Upon completion the array will generate 2,540kWh/month or 30,480kWh/year of clean electricity from solar PV offsetting the same amount of electricity generated by coal-fired utility power plants and will have the equivalent of one these annual positive effects on the environment:
• 47,905 pounds of carbon dioxide not released into the atmosphere;
• 50 barrels of foreign oil not imported;
• 2,466 gallons of gasoline not consumed.
The project affirms the power of one individual, one family and one group to reverse global warming. As part of the outreach and education component of this effort, Northwest invites other individuals, organizations and Metro Atlanta religious communities to become active partners in this endeavor.
