Many people want to take meaningful action on climate change but don’t know where to start. Taking a big step, like switching to solar, doesn’t have to be hard. Any change is easier when you have a guide to point you the right way and when your community is on the same journey.
NC congregations are hosting events from Winston-Salem to Wilmington to help individuals and communities find out if solar is right for them. NCIPL has partnered with two mission-driven, locally-owned solar installation companies, and at each event stop our experts will help you learn everything you need to know about solar and answer all of your questions.
This is what the Sol Train is all about. Our team of climate change advocates, energy specialists, and solar installers are working together to make solar simple. And when you spread the word, our impact on climate change grows.
We can no longer be complacent about the dangers that come with burning fossil fuels. We have witnessed smog-filled skies and bursting coal ash ponds. Greenhouse gases are warming our planet and, as a result, the natural places we love and our very livelihood are threatened. Every week we hear of another beach town or port city underwater due to rising seas and extreme flooding. Inland, farmers struggle to bring food to market through harsh drought, severe storms, and unprecedented fluctuations in weather. This crisis will continue to worsen, unless we take action now.
The call to care for those in need is central to our faith. As climate change impacts lives and livelihoods throughout the world, we have the power to translate our compassion into action. In a time when partisanship and politics paralyze conversation, people of faith have the opportunity to inspire and empower Americans with hope-filled climate solutions. For the first time in generations, we have a choice. We no longer need to rely on fossil fuels. More than a million Americans power their homes with clean, reliable, solar energy. You can, too, with NCIPL’s newest emPOWERed program that makes it simple for homeowners to switch to solar.
Kathy Miller, Co-Founder and CEO of Yes Solar Solutions said, “We are honored to partner with the NC Interfaith Power and Light and Next Climate in this message of hope and the power of solar.”
