Congregations can implement energy savings for their church facilities
Energy Star has published a guide for church leaders to use to help save energy in their church buildings - the ENERGY STAR® For Congregations Guide.
When your congregation pays its utility bills each month, you probably don't care too much about kilowatt-hours or therms. You want heat, air conditioning, lighting, and other services at the lowest possible cost.
Putting Energy Into Stewardship can help you get the most from your equipment and facility and decrease your operating costs. We call this energy optimization; you'll just call it smart stewardship of money and natural resources.
Most religious traditions teach stewardship of financial and natural resources. Energy efficiency is an excellent means of achieving both of these objectives at the same time, because energy saved is both money saved and pollution prevented.
With so many pressing and legitimate demands on your congregation's financial resources, does it make sense to pay more for energy? Ineffective energy use wastes the Earth's precious natural resources and causes pollution. Many congregations are becoming better resource stewards.
Energy efficiency recovers the money you would otherwise spend each month on wasted energy. Every time a light, a computer, or an air conditioner is turned on, a power plant consumes some type of fuel to generate electricity.
