The project builds off a major renovation that took place at GCC ten years ago in which new HVAC equipment and electrical services were installed.
In addition to the installation of UV light filters, GCC has embarked on a clean energy project, which has entered Phase 2.
Completed in April 2020, Phase 1 consisted in the replacement of all current lighting fixtures with LED lighting fixtures as well as more efficient lighting control systems on the church campus.
“Eversource also helped us conduct an electricity usage audit,” said Hutchins. “Eversource also provided financial support towards both the cost and the installation of the LED’s, which laid the groundwork for the solar panel installations, a project that should be complete by the end of September.”
“It has taken the proverbial village to deliver these projects, so this is a community-wide effort that will pay dividends for decades to come,” added Graham. “I believe both projects make a meaningful difference in our community and the world.”
Located in Gilford, NH, Gilford Community Church (GCC) is an inclusive, open community that accepts believers and doubters, seekers and skeptics, young and old.
