St. Mary's Parish in Johnson City received a "Cool Congregations" award (and a check for $1000) from the national Interfaith Power & Light organization for energy efficiency efforts that began with a free energy assessment from Green Interfaith Network Inc. (GINI). We will celebrate the congregation's success and showcase some of the changes they have made. We will also share information from other local congregations who have accepted GINI's offer for a $500 incentive to begin energy efficiency efforts.
Note that GINI seeks two more congregations (or faith-related nonprofit organizations) in Washington County to receive a free energy assessment and apply for our $500 incentive to implement energy efficiency changes. Reduction of utility bills
allows monies to be re-allocated toward other important ministries.
Details about the energy assessment process are available on the GINI website: http://greeninterfaith.org
