High River United Church Installs Solar Panels



We are so excited to be installing Solar Panels on the roof of High River United Church as one of our 135th Anniversary projects.  A local company, Goose Creek Renewable Energy, is installing the solar panels has already been up on the roof measuring.  We should be begin to see work happening soon.

The total cost for the project is $68,000.  Two grant applications made by High River United have been approved for a total of $40,000.  Much thanks to The United Church of Canada’s Faithful Footprints Grants for a $30,000 grant and to the Foothills Energy Co-op for a $10,000 grant. 


The remaining balance has been covered by an interim donation by a single donor so that we can move on this project and reap the rewards of sunlight this summer. The solar array will provide us with approximately 60-70% of our energy which will save us about $650 per month in electrical costs, in addition to helping care for the world.  

We invite you to participate in this 135th Anniversary project by purchasing one of the 76 solar panels. We invite your donation of $370 per panel or $185 for a ½ panel.  All donations of any amount will be gratefully accepted toward this green energy project.  Or you might wish to top up your donation up to $500 adding a special anniversary gift for your congregation.
Here are options we invite you to consider:

  •  $370 for one panel 
  • #____ X $370 = __________ for multiple panels
  •  $185 for ½ panel
  •  $ ______   toward a panel  (your choice of amount)
  •  $500 for one panel plus a special 135th anniversary gift to HRUC
