2016-11-15 The Baptist community Groningen goes for solar power and has installed solar panels on the roof of the church building.
The church building “De Cirkel” is being used for activities of the baptist community itself but also available and used increasingly for all kinds of groups. This is why the energy bill was also rising rapidly in the last couple of years.
During the membership meeting of the Baptist community Groningen in March 2016 it was therefore decided to place solar panels on the roof of the building, to be able to reduce a great part of the electricity costs and to have a responsible contribution to the task of reducing CO2 emissions in Groningen.
The solar panels have been installed in the summer of 2016. It concerns in total 40 solar panels to generate about 10.000 kWh of power.
