A Davis County church is getting some extra help from the heavens.
Centerville's Episcopal Church of the Resurrection now boasts 96 solar panels, supplying 47,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a year. That's enough juice to virtually erase the congregation's $8,500 annual power bill.
And with those freed-up funds, the Rev. Lyn Z. Briggs, the church's vicar, envisions being able to do even more to advance "God's work."
"This is a means to our mission," she said Friday. "We're called to protect God's creation, and then we can move on to other parts of God's mission."
The new array was the brainchild of worshippers in her small congregation of about 100 members — some with solar panels already on their homes.
