Oct 9, 2014 | In the News, State Press Clips


Congrats to Joelle Novey for winning the Advocacy Award during the 2014 Maryland Clean Energy Summit! The Advocacy Award is given to “an individual, group or organization that actively engaged in advancing and improving opportunities for business expansion, policy creation and work force development.”

“As the director of Interfaith Power & Light (IPL) in Maryland, Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia, Novey has spent the past five years educating faith-based communities about energy and environmental issues, and inspiring action. Working together with Groundswell, IPL has organized clean-energy purchasing groups that have enabled both churches and individual homeowners to switch to 100 percent wind power at attractive prices. IPL helped religious voices speak up for clean energy in Annapolis and galvanized faith communities to advocate for offshore wind energy. IPL is currently organizing Baltimore’s first residential-solar purchasing co-op and working to increase Maryland’s Renewable Portfolio Standard to 40 percent.”
