Initial Proposals - 9/23/22
In the past, there has been interest expressed in investigating the use of Solar Power at CELC to help reduce the church's electricty costs and to be good stewards of the environment.
Randy Heibel is the church council member in charge of Buildings and Grounds. He has been researching solar options and obtaining proposals from companies that do solar installation commercially. On Sunday, 9/18, at the end of the service, he provided information on these proposals to the congregation. At this stage, it is purely informational as the church council has not made any decisions on whether to move forward, what options are viable, and when to bring to the congregation for approval.
