Solar Anyone?

The Green Committee is in the early stages of partnering with Solar United to create a Solar Co-Op.  The concept is to create a group of interested people who will then collectively approach solar installers for bids to do installations for the group.  Because there would be a group, costs are lower.
Solar United has done this before and will assist with every phase of gathering interest, vetting installers, and assuring quality work with a good warranty.
If you have an interest in solar energy, this might be the right time and way to do it!  There will be much more information to come.
We will be discussing this at the next Green Committee meeting, Nov 15 at noon. If you’d like to be part of that discussion, please join us.  You can also take a look at to learn more about the partner organization.

Green Committee Events

The Green Committee has a series of events throughout the year. We hope you will be able to join us for all of them!

See the monthly newsletter or the calendar for more information on events.

We are working to become a Green Sanctuary.  This is one of the ways we work toward a vision of healthier, more sustainable future.  To contact our Green Sanctuary committee, email

Unitarian Universalist congregations that have been recognized as a Green Sanctuary live with a deep awareness of our climate crisis and the deep environmental injustices of our time. They commit to four practices, grounded in Unitarian Universalist principles:

  • Environmental Justice: We partner with marginalized communities who are hit first and hardest by environmental crisis.  In partnering with these communities we are able to address human and environmental needs at the same time.
  • Worship and Celebration: As we work together towards a cleaner, more just and sustainable world, worship inspires our work and reminds us of what is most sacred and most true.
  • Religious Education: Our workshops and programs for all ages shape attitudes and build practices that are sustainable and spiritually-grounded.
  • Sustainable Living: We treat the world more gently by using fewer resources and being mindful of the choices we make, both as a congregation and as households.

We invite all who share these values to join us on this journey of connection, sustainability, and hope. Contact a Board Member to get involved. And join our broad and growing movement for climate justice with Commit2Respond.
