DRAPER, Utah — Clear sunny skies today meant more than just a beautiful Sunday morning for the Community of Grace Presbyterian Church, which is now being powered by a newly completed Blue Sky solar energy project.

Eighty-five percent of the church’s energy usage now comes from the sun. The 110-panel solar array will yield the church over $7,000 annually in energy savings.

Made possible by a $63,183 grant from Blue Sky customers, the project enables funding from energy savings to be repurposed for community-based outreach programs.

“This grant has enabled us to generate renewable energy in a visibly creative way that serves not just our congregation but also many Sandy community groups that make use of our church facility almost daily,” said Jeffrey Schreiber, Community of Grace Presbyterian Church leader. “We are so excited and grateful to Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky program customers.”

The church is the first location among the 22 Presbyterian churches in the Utah-Idaho area to switch to solar energy and embody its commitment to environmental stewardship.

Since 2006, Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky customers have voluntarily supported wind and solar energy generation in the region. Blue Sky has provided more than $10 million in funding to community-based renewable energy projects. More information about the Blue Sky program is available at www.rockymountainpower.net/bluesky.
