WPC — on the way to 100% green power
This April we observe the first anniversary of the installation of the solar panels on the kitchen roof. This has produced excess electricity that has been sold back to Dominion for about $677. The total production by the solar array in the most recent 12 months was 9.84 Megawatt hours (MWhr).
The church used 175 MWhr from July 2016 to June 2017. This was down from 187 MWHr used the previous year. A member of the committee whose all electric household only has two people used 14 MWhr during this same time frame.
Also, in September 2017, the session approved the purchase of wind Renewable Energy Certificates through Arcadia Power. This supports wind farms in other parts of the USA. Arcadia provides 100% offsets for all of Dominion’s electricity used at Westminster. This program has worked well and now we, as citizens, need to make Arcadia redundant by lobbying Dominion to provide clean renewable power here in Dominion’s service area.
