The Trinity Green Page
We have all heard a lot about climate crises, and maybe drought, big storms and heat-waves have convinced us about global warming. It makes us feel helpless. What can we do? This page attempts to pull together a few things that we can do as individuals and as a community which, if enough of us do them, can make a real difference.
We are a community full of talented and well-educated people. If you have any useful ideas or resources not yet seen here, please contact the church office and we'll get the word out!
Updated News: At the end of 2023, we received a very generous offer from a parishioner that would benefit both Trinity and the environment. After research and a lot of discussion, we have settled on solar panels on the parish hall roof and replacing one of our aging heating and cooling systems with a heat pump. The solar installation is expected to supply 94% of our existing demand for electricity, avoiding the release of 9 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. Replacing the heat pump will avoid an additional 9 tons of CO2 per year.
Together these projects will eliminate 40% of our annual carbon footprint. Contracts have been signed and work should begin by the end of February 2024.
