Green Power Initiatives

Solar Power

Shir Hadash has implemented multiple solar projects over the last decade - including a major addition of solar panels completed in 2018. 

Reducing Energy Use

In 2002, Congregation Shir Hadash installed a 10 kW photovoltaic (PV) system on its religious school roof to enable the congregation to use the renewable power of the sun for a portion of its electric needs. At the time it was estimated that this installation would reduce emissions the equivalent of driving approximately 32,097 miles in an average passenger car, and reduce CO2 emissions equal to the CO2 absorbed by approximately 4 acres of trees in one year.

Since then, the Congregation has implemented other green projects, including:

  • Installation of motion detectors in classrooms.
  • Use of natural heat and lighting in the congregation’s recent remodel.
  • A variety of educational programs for the congregation.
