New Ebenezer Baptist Church, Indiana

Jefferson Electric LLC used Fronius inverters to help make this 20 kW instal­lation come to life at New Ebenezer Baptist Church in Merrillville, Indiana.

Installed in 2015, the entire system consists of 80 Solarworld modules, 2 Fronius Symo SnapINverters. On average, the system produces 20 kW and saves the church an estimate of $3-4K per year in energy bills. Jefferson Elec­tric was able to secure a grant from the Indiana Office of Energy Development to help finance the system.

Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church was first established in East Chicago, Indiana over 60 years ago. When the New Ebenezer Baptist Church was esta­blished in Merrillville, Indiana they sought to cut down their utility costs for the parish. New Ebenezer now participates in the Climate Boot camp; an event hosted by Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light. The focus of this organization is to equip faith leaders to speak confidently about climate change, its impacts and to respond wisely to the critical challenge. Reverend Tom Brian hopes to influence more churches in the area to go solar.
