Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta is pleased to announce that on Friday, January 30th, 2009, that
Soenso Energy will complete the installation of 20 solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, constituting the first phase of a 108

carbon emission. The Congregation undertook this project under the leadership of its Earth Ministry Team and in reverence
of Unitarian Universalist seventh principle, respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Upon completion the array will generate 2,540kWh/month of clean electricity from solar PV offsetting the same amount of
electricity generated by coal-fired utility power plants will have the equivalent of one these annual positive effects on the environment:
• 47,905 pounds of carbon dioxide not released into the atmosphere

The project affirms the power of one individual, one family and one group to reverse global warming. As part of the
