07 Feb True Life Church becomes First House of Worship To Go Solar In Round Rock, Texas
As part of their mission to not only be good stewards of their finances but also of the environment, True Life Church recently went solar with a 45,000w solar PV system.
Their investment in renewable energy represents over 1,500,000 kWh of energy they’ll no longer have to purchase from their energy provider over the next 25 years.
Instead, they’ll be harvesting energy from a rooftop powerplant that they now own. True Life Church’s Senior Pastor, Richard Neusch felt strongly that reducing their usage was not only a good financial decision, but a good conservation decision as well.
True Life Selects Longhorn Solar
After receiving several bids, the pastoral team chose to go with Longhorn Solar to install the project.
Pastor Neusch appreciated the time we took to understand the building’s current usage and how they could maximize savings.
Once the system was live, Pastor Neusch said, “When our members and those who live in the neighborhood saw that we had installed solar, they were grateful that we’re doing our part to take care of the environment.”
The new solar array gives True Life Church a potential estimated 30-year savings of over $230,000.
They’ll be looking at building efficiency solutions in the future to further increase their solar ROI.
We really enjoyed working with True Life to help them go solar and impact the environment in a positive way.
We’re excited to see more and more houses of worship get behind the investment opportunity that solar presents!
