Georgia Interfaith Power & Light is seeking volunteers with professional experience in architecture, engineering, building construction, and related activities who are willing to be trained to conduct energy audits of church buildings, synagogues, and mosques. The energy audits are part of GIPL’s effort to address air pollution and climate change by helping faith communities reduce their energy consumption. GIPL has a matching grant program that will give a congregation up to $25,000 for energy improvements made to its buildings. GIPL will conduct regional training sessions for volunteers. “Teams of newly trained volunteers, each with a volunteer note-taker, will look at a building from top to bottom to list places where energy efficiency improvements can be made,” said the Rev. Woody Bartlett, GIPL’s president. Each walk-through audit takes about two hours. Professionals interested in helping, or who just want to find out more, may contact Bartlett, 404-298-6688 or email@example.com
