Solar Moonshot Program Grantee
Grace Episcopal Church at Riverhead
"We consider minimizing our carbon footprint fundamental to our living out the mission of Christ. It is a priority not only of our diocese, but of the entire Episcopal Church as outlined in the Five Marks of Mission from the 2012 General Convention: 'To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.' This solar project at Grace Church in Riverhead is part of a diocesan-wide effort to reduce the energy consumption of our buildings as part of living out this mission. Not only will we be able to greatly reduce our carbon footprint, but we will also use the savings from our energy bills to reinvest in community programs. We are extremely grateful to the Solar Moonshot Program for helping us make that happen."
