This article highlights the energy audit work being done by Georgia Interfaith Power & Light to assist regional congregations in saving energy and reducing utility costs. Georgia Interfaith Power & Light Â (GIPL) hosts meetings and luncheons at which leaders explain how an energy audit works, what it does, and how supplementary funding for the audit itself can be acquired.
Twice a year, GIPL offers grants of up to $25,000 to implement the audit’s power- and money-saving recommendations. The grants are made possible by $400,000 in federal stimulus money plus $200,000 from a private foundation in Decatur.
