Organization Interfaith Power and Light
History IPL began in 1998 as Episcopal Power and Light, a coalition of Episcopal churches in California to purchase renewable energy. In 2000 other faith communities joined in and California Interfaith Power and Light was born. Now engaging hundreds of congregations and educating thousands of parishioners, it helped California pass its landmark climate/clean-energy laws. Based on its success, the model has been adopted by 37 sister-state affiliates, with the goal of establishing IPL programs in all 50 U.S. states. As an activist/educational organisation, moreover, IPL is explicit that it is building a movement.
