H-IPL’s Using Energy Prudently workshops equip congregations with the tools they need to greatly reduce energy use in their houses of worship and save significant funds for other purposes.
Gain practical information about sealing your building's envelope; maintaining and replacing HVAC equipment; using zoning and thermostats to slash energy waste; lighting technologies for various rooms; and detecting energy hogs in your building.
Who should attend?
To maximize the likelihood of implementing a deep energy reduction plan, each congregation should send a team of two to four people. Ideally, this team will include a leader from the Building or House Committee, a trustee, and green team member.
Savings: Your congregation can save a lot on utility bills by cutting out waste. And these funds can go straight into mission. One of our congregations cut its energy use by 50% – and is saving $10,000 a year.
How-To Help: You can do this! With stories and step-by-step tools, we’ll show you how to cut your congregation’s energy use and get your congregation on board. You’ll have time to figure out what will work for you. You’ll get just what you need to put your learning into action.
Support: And you’ll leave with a community. The workshop will give you a network that can support you as you save your congregation money for mission.
