For over 100 years, the Dupont Park Church family has maintained a visible and effective presence in Washington DC, combining the proclamation of the full gospel of Jesus Christ with the ministry of education. Dupont Park Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to provide a dynamic worship experience that is relevant, personal, and authentic, while developing disciples that will serve locally, nationally, and globally.
Funded through the Solar for All initiative, a program of the District of Columbia’s Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE), Dupont Park will be working with Groundswell to produce community solar projects that will provide 47 qualifying households with significant energy savings. These families will receive an energy subscription at no cost to reduce their electricity bills by at least 50%. Through the Solar for All 2018 grant cycle, Dupont Park will host two solar projects totaling 168 kW of capacity. The planned church roof installation is 43 kW, and the planned carports—shade canopies will be 125 kW that will be installed in an adjacent parking area.
