The Long Island Interfaith Environment Network invites you to:

Energy Efficiency for Religious Congregations
Wednesday, April 16, 2008
10:00am – 1:00pm

Molloy College, Suffolk Center

All places of worship use energy, and often pay large bills. Energy efficiency and renewables are an important way to reduce energy consumption, foster good stewardship of the environment, and maybe even lower energy costs.

Come learn from a panel of expert speakers and exhibitor tables what incentive programs and financing options are available to places of worship, and what inspiring places of worship in our region have already achieved.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to get your questions answered!

There is a suggested donation of $15 for this workshop. Leaders and plant managers of all faiths welcome! To make sure we have enough lunch and materials for you, please RSVP to Beth Fiteni, 631-963-5454 or by April 14th.
