Parish officials hope the panels will produce more than enough power to light St Mary's in Lidgate, Suffolk.
They plan to sell the excess electricity back to the National Grid.
St Mary's is thought to be one of the first churches in the country to try to generate power and extra money in such a fashion.
Church warden Michael McEvoy said the scheme, which will cost £12,000, will not spoil the church's architecture.
