Sunworks, a solar power solutions provider for agricultural, commercial and industrial, public works and residential markets, is constructing a 370-kW solar power project for the New Life Church in Bakersfield, California.
Sunworks was contracted by The Foursquare Church, a global non-profit organization, to handle engineering, procurement and construction for this rooftop solar project. Construction is expected to start in Q3 2019 and finish by years-end.
“This project expands our relationship with The Foursquare Church, and is the direct result of the successful outcome of previous projects,” said Chuck Cargile, CEO, Sunworks. “Since the inception of the Solar Lending Program, Foursquare has helped advance the installation of nearly 9 MW of solar power which has driven significant cost savings for local churches. We look forward to extending our relationship with Foursquare and helping local churches benefit from the implementation of solar systems that generate renewable power in an effort to help permanently reduce expenses and redirect funds for greater missional purposes.”
Through its Solar Lending Program, Foursquare lends funds to local churches for the express purpose of installing solar systems to offset expensive electric bills.
“The Solar Lending Program helps our local churches reduce their utility expenses and take advantage of significant savings providing a greater opportunity to redirect resources for a greater purpose,” said Jonathan Phillips, director of the Resource Development Department of The Foursquare Church. “We have worked diligently to identify and vet installation partners that understand the priorities and goals of our program. Sunworks is a trusted partner who shares our values. We look forward to exploring additional opportunities with them in the future.”
