Solar Panels and Spirituality
With Dallas being such a diverse city that consists of many different faiths, there are tons of places to worship, including buildings, churches and temples as well. Whether someone chooses to go to a temple, church or mosque, they go to achieve a maximum spiritual connection that they are hard pressed to find anywhere else. Many of these places are huge buildings with just as large electric costs, so it’s no surprise that they’d want to reduce the amounts they pay annually for electricity, and going solar is one of the best ways to cut their energy costs.
Recently, we installed solar panels at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Temple and the Minhaj-ul-Quran in Dallas as both facilities were wanting to reduce their carbon footprint and their electric bills as well. The decision to go solar has allowed each entity to not only save money on their electric costs, but it also helps them sustain the environment through spiritual obligations.
BAPS temples represent “building, maintaining, and preserving physical spaces to uphold” Hindu philosophies, so it’s no surprise that they incorporated solar panels into their Dallas temple as panels undoubtedly help preserve energy. This Dallas installation was the largest worldwide for BAPS temples, generating 217,500 kilowatts of energy per year.
When it comes to Minhaj-ul-Quran, one of their characteristics is to change society for the greater good and solar panels help exemplify that. Going solar is something they haven’t done before, so doing this for the first time sets standards for their other branches to follow. Their panels will be generating 43,500 kilowatts of energy annually.
Both BAPS and Minhaj-ul-Quran will experience savings for eternity by simply going solar. Each facility is expected to save 10 cents on every unit and with 14,500 units and 25 years of warranty, their savings are massive! So just remember, installing solar panels isn’t something just for commercial and private properties, but is a great solution for places of worship as well.
No matter what type of building you have, we do it all. Give us a call today to expand your saving horizons for tomorrow!
