Solar Moonshot Grant Recipient

First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church

Northborough, MA
“For the past decade, First Parish UU church of Northborough, MA has worked on measures to progressively improve our buildings' energy efficiency. The Solar Moonshot grant provides the needed funding to progressively decarbonize church operations. We are inspired by the many benefits brought to life by this 15 kwatt array: This summer, the church lawn will be mown using solar-charged battery power. The 5th annual Soular Jazz Fest will amplify melodies using 100% sun energy. Any surplus generation of solar electrons may be shared with neighboring churches. Solar panel installations create economic opportunity with good jobs; help clean the air and cool the planet; and renew hope. Thank you to Hammond Climate Solutions and Left Coast Fund, for supporting spiritual growth, empowering social action, and nurturing our beloved community.”
