St John’s Door opens for solar
A 3.48 kW photovoltaic solar system was recently installed to help power the Red Door Café.
The cafe, attached to St John’s Anglican church in Moruya, offers meals every week and provides a place of social inclusion.
The system was provided through partnership between South Coast Health and Sustainability Alliance (SHASA) and Micro Energy Systems Australia (MESA)
On Tuesday, December 4, a blessing was held to celebrate the installation of the panels. The event began with the choir ‘Slightly Bent’ singing ‘Here Comes the Sun’, followed by a talk from Kathryn Maxwell of SHASA. Rod Slockee told the story of the ‘singing’ of the stars, the earth and the sun. Mr Slockee and the Reverend Linda Chapman together acknowledged the blessing of the solar panels. The panels will provide at least an additional 4000kW of electricity to the site. Rev Linda Chapman, rector of the parish, thanked SHASA and MESA.
