On 23 August 2017 The Associated Press reported: Church leaders in central Iowa are turning to solar power for their buildings in an effort to aid the environment and save money. The St. John the Apostle Catholic Church in Norwalk has more than 200 solar panels that the Rev. John Ludwig said saves them about $2,000 a year, The Des Moines Register reported. Church member Terry Dvorak founded Red Lion Renewables, a solar development firm, after seeing heavy pollution in China in 2010. Dvorak gathered investors who contributed about $200,000 to purchase the panels. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and culture, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Bishop Robert Pates said Pope Francis' campaign combating climate change inspired the move toward solar. The Pope called for changes in political action and personal behaviors to better care for the environment.
