Caring for Creation
In 2008 the Session (governing body) of First Presbyterian Church declared that we would become a Carbon Neutral congregation. We began to examine all aspects of our corporate life to save energy, reduce pollution, and change behaviors that contribute to global climate change.
Since we took the Carbon Neutral Pledge, we have replaced electrical fixtures, installed new windows in the Education Building, and completely renovated the sanctuary. Improvements in the sanctuary include extensive insulation, energy-efficient HVAC systems, and state-of-the-art lighting. We also installed the City's second-largest solar voltaic generating plant.
In the future we hope to replace inefficient window air conditioning units with energy-efficient systems.
