Florida Avenue Baptist was the first Black church in DC to be solar powered. Church members formed LeDroit Park Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) and partnered with a renewable energy project development company to install a 10 kW system on the roof of the church, reducing its electric bill and its carbon footprint. The LLC owns and operates the solar system and sells the electricity generated to the church at a lower rate than it previously paid through a Power Purchase Agreement. The church plans to further develop its Green Ministry helping members to make their homes more energy efficient.
