How congregations can cut energy costs

Did you know that most congregations can cut energy costs by up to 30% by investing strategically in efficient equipment, facility upgrades and maintenance? The EPA’s ENERGY STAR program can help congregations do this with their staff, free tools, trainings, and technical support. Learn more through a webinar in the afternoon on March 28th.  It will give an overview of how congregations can make optimal use of EPA tools such as Portfolio Manager, which can benchmark and track energy and water use as well as savings and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, there is the Action Workbook for Congregations, which offers all sorts of practical strategies and information. The presenter of this webinar will be Jerry Lawson, National Manager for ENERGY STAR Small Business & Congregations at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The webinar will be hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt, who oversees the UCC's Creation Justice Churches program as the Minister for Environmental Justice. Register here:
