Energy Efficiency for Religious Congregations
Seminar a Great Success

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008
at the Molloy College Suffolk Center

Over 100 were in attendence to hear how their places of worship could save money on their energy bills, and take better care of creation.

All places of worship use energy, and often pay large bills. Energy efficiency and renewables are an important way to reduce energy consumption, foster good stewardship of the environment,
and maybe even lower energy costs.     

The attendees learned from a panel of expert speakers and exhibitor tables what incentive programs and financing options are available to places of worship, and what inspiring places of worship in our region have already achieved.

The seminar featured displays from the following vendors:

  • Premier Power (Solar)
  • Snappy Solutions (green cleaners)
  • Tragar Oil (biodiesel)
  • Ecologic Advisors, Portfolio Management for Environmental Investors
  • LI Energy Partners
  • LIPA
  • Solar Center
  • National Grid
  • Energy Curtailment Specialists

The first conference on Energy Efficiency for Religious Congregations was held Thursday, May 10, 2007. The conference was held at the Molloy College Suffolk Center in Farmingdale.

The event was attended by over 80 representatives of congregations including Christian, Jewish, Unitarian, and Moslem places of worship. The participants received both inspiration, and practical information on how to make their operations more energy efficient.
