Environmental Stewardship


Earth-based Worship

We identify ourselves as an Episcopal/ecumenical/earth-based congregation. We hope that a deep reverence for our more-than-human kin is present in all that we do. We are committed to practicing Creation Care as well as recognizing the many ways that God cares for us through Creation.

Solar Panels

Installed 2018   with Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

Size 11Kw (small) 32 panels

Initial cost $27,000 (included 25yr. Inverter warranty)

Savings  to St. Peter’s over 25yrs:  $40,000 minimum

PPA rate is locked in.  From the start was lower than utility rate so that church was saving from Day One  

Church will own system after 15 yrs.

No upfront cost to House of Worship

Parking Lot

In the fall of 2023, we had a new parking lot installed next to our church. As part of the construction, we prioritized putting in bioswales throughout the lot. The bioswales help collect stormwater runoff and filter out pollution.
