Energy Efficiency for Religious Congregations 5/10/07

Long Island Places of Worship Clean Energy Committee

There is growing interest among many religious institution around the country in good stewardship of the planet earth. The Neighborhood Network is working to foster and harness this interest on Long Island, to create positive change. To that end we have joined with a number of representatives of religious congregations to form the Long Island Places of Worship Clean Energy Committee. The mission of the committee is to educate leaders and facility managers about energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies that they can implement in their places of worship.

The committee will be presenting a conference on Energy Efficiency for Religious Congregations, Thursday, May 10, 2007. The conference will be held at the Neighborhood Network office in Farmingdale. It will feature presentations on:

  • Why energy efficiency makes us good stewards of the earth,
  • Financial incentive programs are available to places of worship, and
  • Inspiring success stories from places of worship in our region.
