First Presbyterian Church Case Study

Client background

First Presbyterian Church has been a leading congregation in the Columbia, Missouri area for over 180 years. Located in the heart of Downtown, just south of The District, First Presbyterian is situated between three major collegiate campuses. They started their congregation in 1828, and their current building was constructed in 1965. Through the years, their building has changed with the community, which has shown their dedication to standing side-by-side with their fellow Columbia residents.

Leaders of the First Presbyterian Church realized that their building’s amenities were outdated, so they contacted EnergyLink in an effort to improve their building’s energy usage, with goals of improving comfort for their followers and lowering the costs associated with running the facility. After conducting a comprehensive energy audit, EnergyLink found several key areas for improvement.
