The sun will begin generating about half of Morrow Church’s electricity needs thanks to a solar panel system. The system will dramatically reduce Morrow’s carbon footprint over its expected 25-year life.
Morrow is inviting community members to cut their electricity bills and move to renewable energy.
This long-held ambition of the church’s Green Team was made possible by a generous donation by Fred and Sue Profeta. The Profeta are long-time, devoted members of the congregation. Fred also served as Mayor of Maplewood from 2004-2008, was a founder of the Maplewood Township Green Team, serves on the Board of Directors of GreenFaith, and was awarded the 2010 New Jersey Governor’s Environmental Leadership Excellence award.
Other members of the congregation are also contributing to the initiative and hope it will inspire others to follow Morrow’s lead.
