What is Project Green?

Matthew 7:12 – “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.”

Mission Statement:

To empower low income families by enabling them to pay for their own electric usage.

Project Green:

  • provides solar panels to low income families
  • establishes a relationship between them and the utility company
  • teaches each family how to use their new solar panels, so they get the maximum benefit from them
  • evaluates the home for other energy improvements that can be made
  • provides assistance with solving these deficits
  • requires a repayment from the family at a rate of 2% of their monthly income with the pay back amount being decided on an individual basis

Results of this Project:

  • through the use of solar panels low income families will become responsible for their own electric usage
  • the money that would be given to these people by churches and other organizations will now be available to help someone else
  • jobs will be created for installers and others who are involved in the project
  • to the extent that Project Green is successful, there will be less dependence on fossil fuels and more on renewable energy
