Solar program Sunday at Freeport church

FREEPORT – St. John United Church of Christ will hold a "Solar 101" meeting on its plan to install a 65-kilowatt solar energy system from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday at the church, 1010 S. Park Blvd.

The keynote speaker will be Teague Dickey, president of Iconic Energy of Rockford, who will discuss how solar works, what an array like the one planned at St. John UCC can be expected to produce, and how homeowners and businesses can join in preserving the environment.

Installation at St. John is scheduled to begin in the middle of this month, with a "Flipping the Switch" service on Reformation Sunday, Oct. 27.

Call the church at 815-235-2824 for more information.
