Interfaith Power & Light (DC.MD.NoVA) is committed to serving as a meeting point for the good folks in the area who are undertaking congregational solar projects, and to ensuring that each project benefits from the experience and lessons learned of all of those that came before.
Solar Congregations Map
In celebration of the faith communities in our region that have gone solar, check out our comprehensive map of solar congregations in the region. Click on each pin for helpful information on details of the installation and contact information for solar leaders at these congregations.
We hope this tool can serve as a resource to congregations in the process of thinking about solar while lifting up and celebrating those congregations that have already done so.
Do you know of any solar congregations that aren’t on our map? Do you have corrections for the information on the map? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make our map even better.
