Sunpower 360 W PANELS
In 2017 Angelus Temple, located in California, made the decision to go solar! Angelus Temple is the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel’s oldest church. They are of penecostal denomination and have greatly expanded into all 50 states, reaching many people, since their beginning in 1923.
Angelus Temple is a meaningful landmark that is rich with history; and continues to make important strides in the present. In 2017 they acknowledged the urgency of one of the modern world’s biggest challenges, climate change. This inspired them to establish new environmental initiatives for the church, because they recognized that it is a problem that affects everyone and needs to be managed. So they wanted to do their part!
While sustainability was their main concern, they also wanted to look for ways to save money and lower their monthly expenses. After deliberation, they decided that solar energy seemed like the best option that could encompass both of their goals.
