What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Power Wise

GIPL’s Power Wise program is designed to help congregations lower their carbon footprint by reducing the amount of energy that is consumed on site. This reduction in energy consumption helps to reduce environmental injustices that are caused by the improper storage of energy waste, and the public health problems that are caused by coal and natural gas plants in Georgia.

Population(s) Served

GIPL’s Water Wise program is designed to help congregations understand their water usage in order to explore and implement water-efficiency upgrades. Water is one of the most precious resources we have. Likewise, conserving water resources is one of the most important things a faith community can do to combat the negative effects of climate change, resource depletion, drought, and habitat reduction.

GIPL is committed to advancing Georgia’s clean energy economy. Expanding access to solar energy is central to this work. GIPL helps faith communities and religious schools explore solar as a viable energy option so as to reduce operating costs and carbon emissions. GIPL also actively pursues energy policies at the state and federal level that ensure all communities have equal access to renewable energy choices such as solar power.
