St. Paul's is using its steeply pitched, south facing, sanctuary roof to save significant expense and as well to reduce its carbon footprint.

What You Need to Know

Description:

48 solar panels installed high on the steeply pitched, south facing sanctuary roof. A new roof was installed approximately one year before the panels were installed. A pair of inverters (not individual micro-inverters) services the 48 panels.

Maintenance Requirements:

No maintenance has been necessary in year one. But anything that should come up will be taken care of by Solect Inc. until St. Paul's assumes ownership of the system, 9 years from now.

My Motivation:

We wanted to save money and be better stewards of our god-given planet.

Experience with Installer:

We worked closely with Solect and a St. Paul's member who practices law to make the PPA and site-access agreements pass muster. In the end, both St. Paul's and Solect Energy Development are pleased with these agreements.
