Second Presbyterian Unveils EV Chargers With Solar Project

1 min read

Second Presbyterian Church in Little Rock is offering more than the power of the Almighty these days.

The church, on Pleasant Valley Drive, is proclaiming itself the first Arkansas house of worship with electric vehicle charging stations, in addition to an 81-panel sun array installed by Seal Solar Solutions of North Little Rock.

Church officials called two-station charger and the solar generation project examples of the congregation’s obligation to protect the Earth.

“As a certified Earth Care congregation, Second Presbyterian strongly believes in and supports renewable energy,” said a statement by the Rev. Stephen Hancock, the church’s senior pastor. “The solar panels will help us offset our church’s long term energy costs and continue our leadership in environmental stewardship.”

The church will also be part of the National Solar Tour on Saturday, Oct. 5, and the will bless the new electric project at a ceremony after Sunday morning services the following day.

“This groundbreaking project is yet another reminder that solar energy knows no bounds,” Seal Solar COO and President Heather Nelson said. “It’s a smart investment for anyone looking to manage and reduce their energy costs,” including churches, nonprofits and government entities.

The $80,000 solar array is on the south parking lot of the 1,800-member church and was aided by a $2,000 grant from Arkansas Interfaith Power & Light. The nonprofit has provided financial incentives for solar projects at state houses of worship for the past four years.
