California IPL worked closely with Grace Tabernacle Community Church, a Pentecostal church in San Francisco’s diverse Bayview-Hunter’s Point neighborhood, to shrink their carbon footprint and form a green team in their congregation. On Juneteenth 2010, the annual celebration of the end of slavery, the church completed an onsite solar installation, helping to move them a step closer to energy independence. The project was made possible with the support of Luminalt Solar and assistance from local youth recently trained in green energy job skills. Grace Tabernacle’s experience will help inspire more congregations in the area to get involved in clean energy solutions.
