In April of 2012, St. Elisabeth’s won a grant from the State of Illinois to go towards the installation of solar panels. After much dedication and generosity of members and friends of St. Elisabeth’s to see this project through, 30 solar panels were installed on the roof over the Parish Hall in June of 2012. The panels produce electricity for the church and when it is not needed for our use, the electricity generated goes directly into the local power grid.
Please check back soon for photo galleries of the solar panel prep work, installation of the panels, and blessing of the solar panels.
