Summer Solstice Webinar: Solar Certified Cool Congregations

June 21, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Join us for our Summer Solstice Webinar on June 21 to hear how the latest national Solar Certified Cool Congregations reduced their carbon footprint, and get inspired to cut the carbon at your house of worship.

What better way to celebrate the summer solstice than to be inspired by congregations that are using the energy of the sun to do their part in healing our Sacred Earth.

The webinar will be on June 21 at 1pm Pacific/4pm Eastern.

Mark your calendars, and register here.

A full range of congregations will present their experiences:

Taftsville Chapel Mennonite Fellowship, a tiny church with only 55 members, has reduced the emissions from their worship facility by 40%, saving 15 tons of carbon emissions and nearly $2,000 per year in energy costs.

We’ll also hear from a medium sized congregation with audacious net zero emissions plans, and a huge congregation that paid $0 down and is certified at the 20% carbon reduction level.

Learn how they got started, overcame challenges, and successfully cut their energy use through energy efficiency upgrades and solar installations.

I’ll also give an overview on various methods congregations use to finance solar based on IPL’s free Solar Financing Guide that I authored, based on my decades-long experience with renewable energy.

Register here for the Summer Solstice Webinar.

Invite your congregation’s building committee, governing board, or green team to join the webinar to get inspired to take action to heal the climate at your house of worship.

These national Certified Cool Congregations are building the movement of people of faith and conscience showing the world that we can take concrete and achievable steps to safeguard the climate for future generations.

Thank you for all you do to care for our common home,

Jerry Bernstein
