Can we have Scott's presentation?
Maryann Debski

Isn’t it better to have a battery in the system in order to use your power when you want, even if the grid goes down?
John Budway
01:02:23
are we selling our solar energy to the grid (Duke Power ) or are we actually using our own power?
Beth Rosso - Delmaco Mfg - Chairman

I am going to leave the questions to Scott, as I imagine folks may have follow ups. That said, we have a few resources you can refer to at a later date. We have a podcast and have covered non-profits, the Duke Rebate, Leasing, Corporations and Tax Credits and more. You can listen here: https://open.spotify.com/show/1uTkSyl21pqG1OAN90svUD

I’ve heard of delays with Duke installing meters- what has your experience been on this?
David Strevel
01:22:15
St. Francis - why did you install enough capacity to offset 40% of energy usage — why not more, why not less?
Lance Pickup
01:23:22
Is the Clare Hall installation a pilot program of sorts? If this is successful, will other buildings on the campus be "solarized" to achieve additional savings / environmental benefits?
Trevor Thompson
01:26:37
As for those last two questions, yes, we saw this as a doable project scale for us to get started. In time, we are hoping to explore more. We picked a building roof that had a fairly new roof, had some visibility to the community, and was a good size to get started (not too much, not too little).

I know that we have done a lot to reduce our energy usage like LED lights and low flow fixtures, but has the parish looked into completing a professional energy audit to find less obvious put possibly more significant energy losses in the parish buildings to identify sources of energy inefficiencies in the buildings?
Trevor Thompson
01:38:26
Yes, Nick, a few years back we had an energy audit by NC Interfaith Power and Light for no charge

Awesome. Thanks.

What if you thought of itas the Jews consider the Sabbath—the most sacred of times?Cease from travel.Cease from buying and selling.Give up, just for now,on trying to make the worlddifferent than it is.Sing. Pray. Touch only thoseto whom you commit your life.Center down.And when your body has become still,reach out with your heart.Know that we are connectedin ways that are terrifying and beautiful.(You could hardly deny it now.)Know that our livesare in one another’s hands.(Surely, that has come clear.)Do not reach out your hands.Reach out your heart.Reach out your words.Reach out all the tendrilsof compassion that move, invisibly,where we cannot touch.Promise this world your love--for better or for worse,in sickness and in health,so long as we all shall live.--Lynn Ungar 3/11/20
