Fund Raising Campaign For Solar  Array Project

Update!    We reached our goal and Jay from Yes! Solar Solutions measures the GSUCC Education Building roof to prepare for solar array installation....


Have you wanted to support solar energy, but can’t install a system on your own? We invite you to be part of a community effort to fund a solar array at Good Shepherd United Church of Christ (UCC) in Cary.

The Array
Twenty solar panels which should generate approximately 8,000 kWh/year of electricity for at least 25 years.

Total System Cost
$20,756, of which $5,000 is already pledged by Good Shepherd UCC. If we exceed our funding target, up to 130 additional panels will be installed. The roof is large! If we do not meet our target, either a smaller array will be installed, or  carbon offsets will be purchased by the congregation.
