Churches tapping into sun


Share post:

CHURCHES IN BARBADOS appear to be warming up to the benefits of solar energy.

Investigations have revealed that at least four churches – The Church of Nazarene at Collymore Rock, The James Street Methodist Church, Shalem Evangelical Church and the New Berean Bible Church – have signed off the Barbados Light & Power grid since investing in solar electricity.

The two churches which shared their experiences with the WEEKEND NATION said the monthly bills were in the $1 500 range, and they thought solar energy would be a way to save.

However, it is the promise of savings that has got some customers in a bit of a bind now.

At least two of them said they are putting out more per month now than before they made the investment in the solar plants. (YB)
