The core of our work is with our covenant churches. We work with them and their members to learn more about the effects of climate change and the moral imperative to act as people of faith. We provide them with a reduced-cost energy audit and help them establish green teams to promote sustainable and money-saving practices.
One of the very noticeable effects of climate change here in Delaware is the increasing number of extreme heat days. They pose a real health danger, especially exheatto vulnerable populations such as the elderly, disabled, Delawareans struggling with their energy bills, and those without transportation.
DEIPL is working with the state Division of Energy and Climate to highlight the problem and develop a strategy that includes churches to help reach our most vulnerable citizens on those dangerous summer days.
