UUI and Solar Energy
Tuesday, July 9, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Join Green Drinks Indy and the Unitarian Universalist Church to learn the story behind UUI’s recent solar panel installation. Our monthly GDI social gathering will be on Tues., July 9, 6-8 p.m. at the church located at 615 W. 43rd St, Indianapolis.
In a front-page lead story on Earth Day this year, the Indianapolis Star reported on the Unitarian Universalist Church’s outstanding leadership in the adoption of solar energy among faith-based organizations in Indiana.
While you enjoy some refreshments and cool drinks, you will hear about UUI’s 10 kwh solar panel installation, made possible by a $25,000 grant from Indiana’s Office of Energy Development and contributions from members of the congregation. In only 2 months, they have generated 3,540 kwh of electricity and has saved almost 2.5 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere (equivalent to the carbon sequestered in 62 trees!
You’ll also hear how UUI promotes solar energy for homes, faith-based congregations and businesses, living up to its Seventh Principle about the interdependent web of life—that one’s actions affect the lives of others.
Green Drinks Indy’s monthly gatherings are open to all, especially those who believe that caring for our environment is the responsibility of each of us. Gain new environmental information and ideas while you interact with like-minded persons in academia, faith-based organizations, government and businesses.
Events are informal and relatively unstructured. At other Green Drinks gatherings, people have made friends, found employment, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. And so can you. Plan to attend and bring a friend!
