Solar Panel Dedication: Thanks!

On Sunday, May 17th - which is when we celebrate Earth Day at Jeff Street - this year we had an added bonus and matter of praise: We have had Solar Panels installed!

The Project was made possible with a donation from ASHRAE (the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers) to purchase the panels and installation donated by Earthwell Energy Management, Inc.

ASHRAE is paying for the materials as a part of their 2009 sustainable footprint project. They hope to help offset their environmental impact caused by having their conference in Louisville in June. Ken Peet, chair of the Sustainability Subcommittee and President of local LSE Engineering, Inc. says with the help of KIPL (Kentucky Interfaith Power & Light), "we selected the church due to its existing efforts to save energy."

[ KIPL is a local organization that looks at ways we, as communities of faith, can encourage living responsibly on God's creation. Jeff Street is a proud member of KIPL.]

We can't thank our friends at KIPL, ASHRAE and Earthwell enough for this fantastic gift. It is a gift that will only keep on giving. Thank you.
