Switch to green power at Methodist Church House

"It is out with the old and in with the new as Methodist Church House in London switches to green electricity.

By using renewable sources of energy, such as solar, hydro, wind, biomass (energy from wood, garbage and agricultural waste) and municipal waste, the Church is putting into practice an objective of its environmental policy that includes a mission of "caring for the Earth".

The Methodist Church Environmental Policy seeks to encourage use of green energy sources and urges individuals and churches to follow good environmental practice.

Head of administration Reg Everest presented a "Going Green" report to the management committee for Methodist Church House and initiated the change in its energy contract. He said: "Itıs us doing what we can. I negotiated this contract via a broker and the same broker will endeavour to make green energy available to all our churches throughout the UK."
