Congregation is first black church in D.C. to be powered by solar energy
from The Washington Post
A historic black church that has sat on the same corner in LeDroit Park for 99 years has become the first African American church in Washington, D.C., to rely on renewable solar energy for electrical power. Florida Avenue Baptist’s installation of 44 solar panels was hailed at a ribbon-cutting this week by Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson and other government officials as a breakthrough in the black community, where the clean-energy divide mirrors its well-known high-tech digital divide with the white community.
