Solar is growing by leaps and bounds!

This is a great time to put solar on your church, synagogue, mosque, or other faith community property with the new federal funding available for nonprofits through the Inflation Reduction Act. It’s like a sale on solar, a 30% discount! The 1300 IPL congregations listed in the directory below have the combined capacity of 105 Megawatts of solar – approaching the amount of FaceBook, the 10th largest commercial user. Save on your energy bill and have more for your mission. Read below to find out how to fund solar on your church building, find a solar installer, and get an award.
