The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tallahassee became a certified Green Sanctuary in May 2006, a denominational designation bestowed upon congregations after undergoing a rigorous program of education, action and consciousness-raising.  In April the following year, UUCT became the first church in the Tallahassee area to install solar panels, becoming an inspiration for other churches, businesses and schools to do the same. This 10 kilowatt system supplies most of the electricity needed to power the church’s education building.

The congregation expresses our commitment to the environment in other ways, including:gs-solarlight_uncropped_wab0009
