Re design of array—the best technical placement on roof left the array practically invisible to community. An architect in the congregation designed a sun-rain shade over main entrance which held 20+ panels very visible to the community and streets and roads—our prophetic statement of creation care. We’ve had hundreds of inquiries over the years since our array was installed.
