Why Churches Need Solar Backup Power

To be perfectly honest, we think every property owner should consider a solar generator to be prepared for an emergency with reliable off-grid backup power. There are some institutions, however, that absolutely demand reliable backup power, and churches and other community centers definitely fall into that category.

Emergency Preparedness Includes Solar Power

If a natural or man-made disaster were to occur, churches are a natural meeting place and shelter within the community not only because of their spiritual meaning, but pragmatically, because they tend to be large buildings with the capacity to temporarily house large groups of people. Having that many people makes power a necessity, and if the grid goes down, a solar generator can help supply much-needed backup power, if a gasoline generator or fuel to power it becomes unavailable. Think of what a great outreach opportunity it would be to meet people in a time of their deepest need with the necessities of light, communications, food, and comfortable shelter.

Ensure Long-Term Financial Stability

With conventional power rates fluctuating so frequently, it can be challenging for institutions that rely on donations such as churches to budget effectively. Because solar generators use only a resource that isn't going anywhere -- the sun -- they are a source of sustainable power. Even if the donations in the offering plates dwindle, investing now in a solar generator can help address future concerns.

Solar Generators Are an Environmentally-Conscious Choice

Churches have a long history of seeking to be good stewards of the resources they are given, and one way to do that is to avoid unnecessary damage to the air quality by extraneous use of fossil fuels. Solar power is a safe, reliable, and eco-friendly power source.
