Novato and Sonoma-based SolarCraft, a leading North Bay solar installer for over 35 years, recently completed the installation of a 43.2 kW DC solar system at New Vintage Church in Santa Rosa, CA. Their facility is now utilizing clean, sustainable power while saving over a thousand dollars in electrical bills every month.

SolarCraft Completes Solar Power System at New Vintage Church - Santa Rosa Church Saves with the Sun
Novato, CA, June 10, 2022 --( The solar power system is roof mounted, consisting of 96 high-efficiency solar panels and producing 62,144 kWh every year. The new solar array will offset close to 74% of the Church’s electrical needs annually, putting those savings back into their hands to support the congregation’s needs.

“Working with SolarCraft was a breeze,” said Darren Youngstrom, Lead Pastor at New Vintage Church. “Their team kept us up to date on the progress, responded to all inquiries in a timely manner, kept the project on schedule and were professional and easy to work with. If you are looking through an array of options for your solar needs, we would highly recommend the team at SolarCraft.”

California Clean Energy (CCE), a Renewable Energy Service Provider for nonprofit organizations, will own the system and recover its costs through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the church. A PPA is an alternative to purchasing or financing your own solar power system, providing nonprofits the opportunity to utilize clean solar energy with no up-front costs and no system operation, maintenance, and replacement costs. Customers, such as New Vintage Church, benefit from lower fixed electricity prices than paying the utility and will never increase.

Every year, 44 metric tons of carbon dioxide generated by New Vintage’s operations will be eliminated. This impact is equivalent to removing air pollution produced by 2.8 million miles of driving over 25 years or the pollutants removed by 52 acres of trees in one year.
