Alabama has the lowest solar ratio in the region.
Alabama produces less than half of the watts per customer than any other Southeastern state (Solar in the Southeast, 2017 Annual Report). Alabama IPL will work to support the growth of solar energy in Alabama by educating faith leaders and congregations on clean energy sources. We will provide resources and expertise for helping houses of worship become more energy efficient and employing clean energy sources, primarily solar, to meet their energy needs.
We will also work with houses of worship to establish green teams that will lead their congregations in becoming better stewards of creation through education and advocacy. As our membership and resources grow, we also plan to address air quality concerns, food scarcity, and other persistent environmental issues in Alabama, a state that is deeply entrenched in the coal industry.
As a faith-based organization that addresses the faith community, we are the only nationally supported organization in Alabama that speaks directly to faith communities concerning these issues.
