Houses of worship leave a notable environmental imprint.

Houses of Worship

Per capita, per hour of use, they're often among the biggest wasters of energy, and the United States has more houses of worship than any other country!

Many congregations recognize the moral imperative for stewardship, but don't always stand on the moral "high ground" when it comes to actual energy usage. We need to become better stewards and, in the process, encourage and inspire our congregants to do better at home, school, and work.

Membership in MIP&L offers a concrete way to put faith into action. Together, we will work toward environmental justice and care of creation. We will be a powerful religious response to global warming and environmental degradation!

If we don't, who will?

 

SUCCESS STORIES

Boston SynagogueAll Steamed Up?

Boston Synagogue was all steamed up, not just about climate change but especially about its cost (in $s and environmental impact) for using steam to heat its building. Boston Synagogue (also known as Charles River Park Synagogue) is a small, lay-led synagogue located in the heart of the Old West End near Massachusetts General Hospital. The building was constructed in 1971. It is a single-story structure, with a dramatic pitched "skylight" roof over the Sanctuary.

The result?  During 2009 Boston Synagogue reduced their carbon dioxide emissions by 70%, from over 200,000 lbs to just over 80,000 lbs. Their annual energy costs decreased by 57% during this period, to about $6,800 as compared to about $15,750. Also, their annual repair and maintenance bills dropped significantly. As a result,the estimated payback time on their capital investment is approximately 5 years.
