Mission Statement

Mission Statement:

The Centre County chapter of Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light (PA IPL), a community of congregations, faith-based organizations, and individuals of faith responding to climate change as a moral issue, is launching a new program to encourage energy conservation. The program to be called Weatherization First will seek to encourage faith communities in the region to identify and work with low-income families, the elderly, and people with disabilities to improve the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety.  The simple steps might include weather stripping and caulking around windows and doors; repairing storm windows; repairing broken windows and doors; cleaning and testing the efficiency of heating and cooling systems; and undertaking small-scale insulation projects.

The goals of this new project are:

-- To encourage faith communities in central Pennsylvania to make a concrete local contribution to PA IPL's mission by helping neighbors with limited income, the elderly, and people with disabilities to save heating and cooling costs by conserving energy

-- To reduce global dependence on fossil fuels while conserving energy at the local level


Action Plan:

-- To identify faith communities, human service agencies, and individuals interested and willing to help launch this initiative, to produce preliminary needs assessments, and to determine eligibility criteria for weatherization projects.
