SHOW (Sustainable House of Worship)

All houses of worship in the area are invited to this hands-on workshop conducted by Massachusetts Interfaith Power & Light to evaluate the essential areas of energy use and costs in your House Of Worship:

• Electricity — How to recognize the major energy hogs — and what to do about them.
• Solar Power — Is solar an option for your congregation?
• Heat & Air Conditioning — Is it time for an upgrade?
• Building Envelope — How to make your congregation more comfortable & save money.
• Behavior — How simple actions can reduce your energy bill – and carbon footprint – by 10% or more.

All faiths are welcome! Light refreshments will be served.

Clergy, lay leaders, building & creation care committee members encouraged to attend. We recommend 2 attendees per house of worship.

Presenters are Jim Nail and Bill Schroeder.
