Communities of faith responding to climate change.


Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light is aligned in its mission with IPL to cultivate a religious response to the threat of climate change. We see climate change as a moral issue, one that demands a response from people of faith.


Interfaith Power & Light is mobilizing a religious response to global warming. Our mission is to inspire and mobilize people of faith and conscience to take bold and just action on climate change.


This campaign intends to protect the earth’s ecosystems, safeguard the health of all Creation, and ensure sufficient, sustainable energy for all. Since the year 2000, IPL has helped thousands of congregations address global warming by being better stewards of energy.


We have a track record of tangible results: shrinking carbon footprints and educating millions of people of faith about the important role they have to play in this challenging issue.

Mission & History


Interfaith Power & Light envisions a stable climate where humans live in right and just relationship, interconnected with a healthy, thriving, natural world.



Interfaith Power & Light inspires and mobilizes people of faith and conscience to take bold and just action on climate change.


Interfaith Power & Light effort began in 1998 with Episcopal Power & Light and the support of Grace Cathedral as a unique coalition of Episcopal churches aggregated to purchase renewable energy. In 2000, the effort broadened its focus and brought in other faith partners. There are now 40 state affiliates, and we are working to establish Interfaith Power & Light programs in every state.

Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light is the Pennsylvania affiliate of Interfaith Power & Light. PA IPL is a community of congregations, faith-based organizations, and individuals of faith responding to climate change as an ethical and moral issue through advocacy, education, energy conservation, energy efficiency, stewardship, and the use and promotion of clean, renewable energy.
