October 1 | 5:15 pm Thanks to those who supported the Saint Dennis Solar 2019 Project! Our new 72-panel array on the school roof is completed and, as of August 30, producing electrical energy. The new installation is expected to provide about one-third of the electricity needed to power the church and convent.
Join us as we celebrate “Divine Power” with a formal dedication of the solar installation. Bishop Donald Hying will offer a blessing and a brief invocation as part of the program, which begins at 5:15 pm on the second floor of the Parish Center, where the solar panels can be viewed. (The bishop also will be speaking at Saint Dennis at 6:30 that evening as part of a series focusing on the Catechism of the Catholic Church.)
Our new solar system will provide a big boost toward the goals of reducing carbon dioxide emissions and saving the parish money. Over the 30-year life of the system, the parish expects to save an estimated $158,000 in avoided electric costs.
The Solar 2019 Project cost of $53,000 was funded through grants totaling $20,000 from Solar for Good and Focus on Energy, with the balance coming from parishioner pledges and contributions from individuals and organizations. The Saint Dennis Care for Creation (C4C) Team is grateful for your contributions.
