At Chesterfield Presbyterian Church, we believe God has called us to nurture, as well as conserve and preserve his creation. With that in mind, the church has implemented a number of environmentally responsible business practices in recent years.
Notably, CPC commissioned a solar panel system in 2014 that has, to date, produced more than 50,000 kilowatt hours of power; helped avoid approximately 20 tons of carbon dioxide per year; and produced
more than $3,000 of power. In addition, the church has participated in multiple Ameren Missouri initiatives to convert parking lot and interior and exterior building lighting to more efficient systems.
Other “green” initiatives at CPC include implementation of single-stream recycling and streamlining of office procedures to reduce printing and paper use; and installation of heating/cooling and lighting system controls that allow us to conserve energy by adjusting rooms to unoccupied setting when not in use. The church has also replaced older TVs, appliances and our signage on Clayton Road with energy-efficient models.
