The Project

In 2017, Lighthouse Christian Church decided to expand the many ways they serve others by going solar with the help of CollectiveSun. The church chose to install a 142,708 watt solar power system which, during the next 25 years, is estimated to save the church over $1 million. The solar panels will also significantly lower LCC’s carbon footprint since the power produced from the system adds up to 107,201 pounds of coal not being burned to produce electricity. The church celebrated their new solar panels with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on a Sunday afternoon. At the ceremony, Pastor Mike Openshaw read from the book of Genesis, recalling the account of God’s creation of light. He pointed out that by installing solar panels, LCC was using God’s gift of sunlight to benefit the earth and reduce operating costs the church. With CollectiveSun’s help to fund their solar project, Lighthouse Christian Church will now be able to use the money saved on energy costs to further their mission of making Jesus known by loving and serving others.
