On Tuesday, April 29, 2014, from 1:00 – 2:00 pm (EDT), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership (GPP) will host a webinar on “Green Power Use and Opportunities for Congregations.” The webinar will examine how congregations can capture economic, environmental, and educational benefits by using renewable energy.
For most congregations, electricity usage is the single-largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Thus, using green power can play a significant role in reducing a congregation’s carbon footprint. This webinar will examine how and why congregations and other organizations use green power, including a review of available product options, benefits of procuring renewable energy, and the positive role congregations can play in encouraging green power use by congregants and others.
Webinar participants will also learn about:
- Green power product and procurement options, and associated costs and benefits.
- Overview of EPA’s Green Power Partnership, including how the Partnership can help congregations leverage their green power use to bring positive attention to an organization.
