FARMINGTON, Utah -- The Mormon church - which begins a new construction project every week - is looking to lessen its imprint on the environment.

Church officials on Tuesday debuted a pilot building program that features solar panels generating electricity, tankless water heaters, high-tech insulation, motion sensor lighting and other features designed to maximize economic savings and minimize environmental impact.

The church is showcasing the new building practices at projects in Utah, Nevada and Arizona.

Church Bishop H. David Burton says if the prototypes perform well, the environment-friendly building practices will be implemented on a broad scale.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has more than 17,000 buildings worldwide.
