St. Martin to Share ‘Cool Congregation’ Journey
On Sunday, April 18 at 4:00 PM, Gerry Braun, former chair of the Episcopal Church of St. Martin Care for God’s Creation Commission, will share the story of how the church has moved towards net zero carbon emissions. The church has received an interfaith national award in its effort to reduce the speed of climate change. He will share the results to date, lessons learned, and strategies to maximize cost savings. St. Martin’s has cut its average monthly energy expenditures by two thirds and has inspired a number of parish families to follow suit. How did we do it? What could you do in your own home, business or organization? Do not miss the chance to hear from a parishioner who has championed our effort.
If you stop by St. Martin’s you’ll see their innovative use of solar panels, some for shading parking spaces.
