Thought for the day
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-8
The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. (Psalm19:1)
Renew-Reduce-Recycle-Reuse is the new nomenclature of this century. God has blessed this earth with abundant resources. Let the resources be utilized in a useful way. The CSI Kanyakumari Diocese installed Solar Power Generation System in the Diocesan Office on 19th Jan. 2021. Our Bishop Rt Revd Dr A. R. Chelliah inaugurated the Solar Power Generation system in the presence of Dr. Thambi Vijayakumar (Vice President), Er. S. Byju Nizeth Paaul (Secretary), Mr. N. P. Thankaraj (Treasurer). Revd J. Vincent Robert (Convener-Ecological Concerns Committee) is taking initiative and working among the churches to promote Ecological awareness.
Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing this system will help in combating greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our collective dependency on fossil fuel. Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity, they emit harmful gases that are the primary cause of air pollution and global climate change. Not only are fossil fuels bad for the environment, but they are also a finite resource. Because of this, the price is constantly fluctuating and can increase in a short period of time.
Renewable energy also improves public health. Coal and natural gas plants produce air and water pollution that is harmful to human health. But replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, such as solar power, can reduce premature mortality as well as overall health care costs. Our system is predicted to generate 1460 MWhr resulting in an equivalent saving of 144 tons of co2 emission and 3840 planting Trees.
Although fossil fuel production requires significant water resources and causes water pollution, solar energy requires little to no water to operate. So, not only does solar power not pollute water resources, it also doesn’t put a strain on the world’s water supply.
Let’s move forward and use the natural resources that create a sustainable energy.Back
