Guest Blog | March 25, 2016 | Energy Policy, Solar, Wind

Kailie Melchior, Communications intern with SACE, co-wrote this blog.

In the spirit of Lent, SACE has reflected on the past 40 days of Lent by showcasing 40 places of worship that put their faith to work by promoting solar and wind energy. Using these forms of energy presents opportunities too not only reduce the impact on the environment, but it also saves money. Many faith-based organizations really benefit from the reduced cost that these resources provide – and it helps in more ways than one by allowing them to advocate for creation care. Clean energy is a positive step forward no matter the faith one subscribes to! Even numbers are solar – odd numbers are wind!
