Saskatoon Mennonite church takes renewable energy approach

In recent months the congregation has added a 20-panel, 10-kilowatt solar system that the Saskatoon church hopes to cover around 60 percent of their energy costs for the year.

The transition to solar makes the congregation the first Mennonite church in Saskatchewan to adopt the renewable energy source.

Wildwood joined the Mennonite Creation Care Network two-and-a-half years ago and after studying the network curriculum, a voluntary carbon tax amongst members was brought up to fund the solar panels.
