LOWER ENERGY COST AND RECEIVE FREE REBATE MONEY
Dear Fellow United Methodist Congregations,
Duke Energy is currently giving away FREE MONEY to nonprofit organizations that decide to Go Solar!
Our congregation, First United Methodist Church of Stanley, North Carolina (on CommonGround), has recently installed a 15,000 watt solar array which was added to a previously installed 5,000 watt solar array for a system total of 20,000 watt AC power. Considering we have added a 15,000 watt system, we will receive $11,250 (75 cents/watt) from Duke Energy. Our total system will generate more than $4,000 a year in power savings. The panels and inverters installed also have a 25-year parts warranty, which guarantees our church roughly $100,000 in power savings during the life of the panels and inverters.
