Capital Area Chapter - Michigan Interfaith Power & Light

Capital Area Chapter

What is our response, as people from faith communities, to the challenges of climate change and racial injustice? Individually, our houses of worship have already begun to highlight a path to a renewable future. Together, we can do much more! 

Members of congregations from the Lansing area are joining together to promote transformative climate action in our community. Currently we are working with our partners at the Southside Community Coalition to support this organization’s environmental impact in South Lansing by building a rooftop solar project that will drive their program with 100% renewable energy!

The South Side Community Coalition has met and exceeded its Green Energy Project $35,000 fundraising goal! We expect the solar panels will be installed in late winter/early spring and celebrated around Earth Day (4/21/22). Read more here.

The Capital Area Chapter's efforts currently involve members from the Presbyterian Church of Okemos, Haslett Community Church, Edgewood Church, the Islamic Center of East Lansing, First Presbyterian Church of Lansing, Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lansing, All Saints Episcopal Church, University Lutheran Church, and Kehillat Israel.
