Second Church in Dorchester
Through the Codman Square Goes Solar initiative, Second Church in Dorchester installed a 25-kilowatt system on the roof. “It was an exciting time for us when we heard that we can have solar on our roof that provides a portion of the electricity for our building,” recalls Alphonse Knight, the property manager at Second Church. “We are smiling to the bank for saving a lot of money. It’s catching on in the neighborhood… Solar is here to stay and we want to work with it.” The project provides a means for Second Church to lead by example and be a steward in faith and environmental leadership. In 2017, Mayor Walsh awarded the 211-year-old building the Buildings and Energy Greenovate award.
