St. Andrew & Holy Communion Offers Two Earth Day Events
A free lecture will be held on April 19, followed by a solar screening event on April 22.
St. Andrew & Holy Communion Episcopal Church is offering a free lecture, as part of its leadership through the GreenFaith Certification Program, by certified energy professional and sustainability consultant Ed Schwartz on April 19 from 7-8:30 p.m.
Schwartz will provide tips on making your home more energy efficient without sacrificing your home’s historical and architectural integrity. He will enable you to conduct a home energy audit in order to save energy, money and our environment.
St. Andrew & Holy Communion will also be hosting a Solar Screening Event by GreenFaith, an interfaith environmental coalition, and AP Solar on April 22 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. The event will offer homeowners the chance to be screened for a zero-cost solar installation that would provide them with discounted electricity.
“We’re excited to host this event and invite all members of the community to join us to see if their roof is suitable for solar,” said Reverend Sandye Wilson.
At the Screening Event, there will be a monitor set up enabling interested homeowners to have their home screened via satellite photos to see if their roof appears to be suitable for solar.
“It’s an enjoyable, interesting way to learn about solar power,” said Rev. Fletcher Harper, GreenFaith’s Executive Director. “We’re eager to work with faith-based sites around New Jersey to identify homeowners whose home qualifies for this great opportunity.”
For every home that successfully goes solar through this Solar Screening Event and related on-line registration, GreenFaith and AP Solar will make a $200 contribution to St. Andrew & Holy Communion.
“We believe in giving back to the community,” said AP Solar CEO John Hooper. “We believe in solar power, and in the importance of the faith community.”
This offer is open to all New Jersey homeowners and the public is welcome to this event. This is a great opportunity to learning if your home might qualify for a no-cost solar installation. If suitable, the installation will increase the value of your property and reduce future energy costs.

For those who cannot be at the Screening Event, homeowners can register on-line at www.greenfaith.org to have their roof evaluated.
