Installation is a first

ARBROATH Old and Abbey Church is joining a select group of Church of Scotland churches in installing solar panels.

They are being fitted as part of the church’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint in line with Church of Scotland recommendations. In addition the project satisfies the need to be good stewards of God’s creation in preparation for a more sustainable future.

The installation of the solar panels is the final phase of a three year improvement plan to make the church buildings as environmentally friendly as possible, helping to reduce the ever increasing energy bills.
