"A Quaker church has hopes its efforts to harness solar energy to power its building will inspire other not-for-profits, individuals and businesses in the area to follow suit.
"Lincoln Blake, who is a co-clerk for the church and overseeing the project, said he is hopeful the panels will help the congregation lower its electricity bill by more than $2,000 per year, while also highlighting what is widely considered to be an important part of the Quaker faith: stewardship of the environment.
"'This grows out of the Quaker concern for stewardship of the Earth,' he said. 'We consider (Earth) to be a great gift and something we should take care of. This is just one small way we can do that more effectively.'"
