Compton Church Champions Clean Air and Community Resilience by Going Solar

Watts-Willowbrook Church of Christ, known as “The Brook,” located at 13204 Mona Blvd. in Compton, in collaboration with RE-volv and California Interfaith Power & Light (CIPL), celebrated the commissioning of their new 12-kW rooftop solar and upcoming battery storage installation on Saturday, June 29.

Strolling his church’s rooftop among 630 solar panels, Bishop Richard Howell Jr. acknowledged climate change isn’t the most pressing concern for his predominantly Black congregation _ even though it disproportionately harms people of color and the poor.
