VERMONT INTERFAITH POWER AND LIGHT seeks to educate faith communities and individuals about the threat that global warming presents to Creation and Earth, and to engage communities of faith in promoting energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy as a solution. The goal of the organization is to move Vermont's faith communities toward sustainable energy use and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, while living out our covenant with the Creator.
Vermont Interfaith Power & Light (VTIPL) exists to serve Vermont faith communities in their efforts to address the climate crisis. VTIPL helps faith communities and their individual members to be better stewards of Creation by using energy wisely, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Vermont Energy Independence Day is an opportunity for advocates for a clean environment in Vermont to join in action at the State House in Montpelier. VPIRG has information at their website at: http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/5980/p/salsa/event/common/public/?even...

One of the ways VTIPL helps congregations is by providing energy audits (also called energy assessments) of houses of worship and other religious buildings. The service is free to congregations that request this assistance, and VTIPL asks each participating congregation to commit to acting on the recommendations to improve the energy efficiency of their religious building.
