Who We Are

Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light is a community of congregations, faith-based organizations, and individuals of faith responding to climate change as an ethical and moral issue, through advocacy, education, energy conservation, energy efficiency, stewardship, and the use and promotion of clean, renewable energy.

PA IPL is the Pennsylvania affiliate of Interfaith Power & Light, a national religious response to the threat of climate change. We see climate change as a moral issue, one that demands a response from people of faith.

We come to this work from different spiritualities and faith traditions, learning from one another and supporting one another in making a better future for generations to come. As members of a common humanity, we recognize that the impacts of climate change are now touching the lives of those least able to adapt. Being part of this effort offers us the opportunity to care for creation and to put our different faiths into action in a meaningful way.


We are hundreds of individuals and nearly 50 religious institutions, who have joined PA IPL by making a monetary contribution and by working to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels by increasing efficiency and conservation. We encourage alternative modes of transportation and the use of clean, renewable energy. Our mail is delivered to a shared workspace at the New Leaf Initiative in State College.  We have an active, all-volunteer board who donate hundreds of hours each year a part-time executive director, and a part-time program director.
