American Atheists Headquarters Gets Solar Panels

There’s no afterlife, so we might as well pay homage to the sun, right?

… [American Atheists] announced today the installation of the George Watley Solar Array on the roof of its headquarters in Cranford, NJ. Not only will the solar array generate 100% of the electrical needs for the main office, it will also produce a surplus of energy. The additional electricity will be sold back to the localelectric company, generating revenue for the American Atheists Legal Fund.

President David Silverman stated, “As atheists, we understand that the responsibility to make positive change in our world lies within us, not in a supernatural force or deity. We take this step toward a better future with great pride.”

Solar and secular. Nice touch!
