DeIPL’s Board

Delaware Interfaith Power & Light (DeIPL) marshalls Delaware’s faith communities to face the serious issue of climate change. We seek to ensure a livable planet for ourselves and future generations.

DeIPL was founded in 2011 as a chapter of Interfaith Power & Light , a national non-profit organization promoting energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy to combat climate change. Interfaith Power & Light brings the voice of the faith community into the policy-making arena to protect the earth’s ecosystems, safeguard the health of all Creation, and ensure sufficient, sustainable energy for all.

Many different religious traditions believe in our common responsibilities as stewards of this earth. And many have put that belief into practice by taking action to protect the environment. Please visit our “What We Believe” page for links to these statements of faith and practice.
