The Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware and Delaware Interfaith Power & Light will co-host the launch of the Energy Efficiencies for Houses of Faith program from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 14, at the UUSD church at 30486 Lewes-Georgetown Highway, Lewes.
Delaware Interfaith Power & Light will announce the addition of seed-grant opportunities for all Delaware congregations participating in Energize Delaware’s Faith Efficiency QuickStart Program, which offers Delaware faith communities valuable information and assistance to achieve greater energy efficiency and resiliency.
Interested congregations are invited to attend. To RSVP, email EarthCareTeam@uussd.org.
John Sykes, Delaware Interfaith Power & Light board president, said, “We are committed to working with Delaware faith communities and congregations to make a positive impact on the existing climate crisis, with energy efficiency being the fastest, cheapest and largest single-resource solution for simultaneously saving energy, saving money and preventing GHG emissions. By participating in the Faith Efficiency QuickStart Program, Delaware congregations will be able to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their utility bills. This will allow them to repurpose the savings to better serve their own mission and goals while engaging in thoughtful stewardship of our natural resources to reduce pollution, protect our life-sustaining ecosystems and conserve resources for future generations. It is a win-win!”
