As part of the capital funding from the Climate Challenge Fund, new lighting has been fitted throughout Granton Parish Church buildings. The new lights are not only brighter but more environmentally friendly and will save 6,133kWh of electricity a year, which is equivalent to 2.8 tonnes of CO2 per year. This makes a significant contribution to reducing the carbon footprint of the church building. The church building will also be fitted with new windows and insulation which will save 12,308kWh or 6.36 tonnes of CO2 per year.
This building work complements the swap shop, bread redistribution and cycling project which all encourage people to reduce their personal carbon footprint.
