California churches meet their sustainability goals through solar energy & energy efficiency

Mission Hills followed the Disciples of Christ Church's decision to reduce its carbon pollution and become carbon neutral by 2030.

In California, two Disciples of Christ churches had the same idea to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their fossil fuel use. Mission Hills Christian Church in San Fernando, outside of Los Angeles, installed rooftop solar panels to reduce its carbon emissions and act at the intersection of environmental care and justice work. Niles Discovery Church in Fremont, near San Jose, installed a solar array to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and lower its energy costs. Both churches are certified Green Chalice churches, which means that they completed a nationwide program to lower their carbon footprints by installing solar panels, creating community gardens, and recycling. Both also have volunteer teams who have helped make the two churches more sustainable through energy and water efficiency actions, allowing them to do more good in their communities.
