Special news from wcumc1218

  1. 1. Special News from WCUMC-12/4/2013 Sharing the transforming love of Jesus, across the street and around the world. WCUMC Trustees Announces Lighting Retrofit Project WCUMC Trustees are launching a capital Improvement project to reduce our energy footprint and expenses by replacing all outdoor and indoor overhead lights (except Sanctuary) with LED lighting; replacing the dimmer switches to accommodate LED lighting, and replacing all T12 florescent lights bulbs with T8 florescent lights bulbs. T8 florescent lights bulbs will last 10 years, will not flicker and buzz and will reduce energy cost by 25 - 50%. Total anticipated cost of this project is $26,500. Background and Rationale Incandescent bulbs will no longer be manufactured after January 1, 2014. LED lights use only 1/3 of the energy of incandescent bulbs and can last 20 years with normal use. Our current electricity budget is just over $21,000 per year, and is the 2nd highest budget line item behind salaries and administration. PSE has announced a Rebate Program to encourage retrofit
  2. 2.   Estimated WCUMC rebate will be $9,000. Retrofit will reduce our energy bill by 20 - 25%, and should generate savings of approximately $4,500 per year. Trustees Recommendation We are initiating a special Lighting Retrofit Designated Fund to raise $26,500. We will launch the full project in January upon receipt of PSE paperwork, but wanted the congregation to know now in the event that anyone wants to donate to this fund prior to the start of the new year. More details will be shared soon during the Sunday morning worship time, and a special display will be set up in the Narthex to answer questions and keep everyone up-to-date on our progress. Checks should be written to WCUMC, with Lighting Project on the memo line. Thank you for supporting this capital improvement project, and God bless. We hope to see you in church this Sunday and God Bless. Have a great week!
