IPLs in the USA

The Regeneration Project

In addition to Massachusetts Interfaith Power & Light, there are IP&L affiliates in 39 other states. How did this movement begin?

In 1994, Episcopal Power and Light was founded by the Reverend Sally Bingham and Steve MacAusland (who is the Co-Founder of MIP&L) as a religious response to global warming. Episcopal Power and Light had its earliest success in California, where more than sixty churches switched from traditional power sources to clean and renewable electricity. Rev. Sally Bingham and Steve MacAusland then began to reach out to other denominations in other states, helping them to start "Interfaith Power and Lights". They planted the seeds for this "IPL movement". Each IPL is its own entity; they are not formally connected with each other, and each has its own approach as well as leadership. There is a national confederation of Interfaith Power & Lights.
