6th Annual Wisconsin Interfaith Energy Awareness Month (October 2012)


Dear Friend:

The award-winning Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light and the Islamic Environmental Group of Wisconsin are celebrating the 6th Annual Wisconsin Interfaith Energy Awareness Month in October 2012.

Change the World, start with ENERGY STAR. Join us in the fight against global warming by taking the ENERGY STAR Pledge.

When you pledge, you are making a commitment to save energy and money and reduce global warming by taking energy-saving actions in your home, such as changing a light to an ENERGY STAR qualified model, enabling your computer to power down when not in use, installing and using a programmable thermostat correctly with pre-programmed settings, choosing products that have earned the ENERGY STAR, and more. Taking these actions will also save energy and money.

The Islamic Environmental Group of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light together set a goal of reducing at least 350,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2010, the Islamic Environmental Group of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light (WIPL) were recognized with the 2010/2011 ENERGY STAR Change the World Pledge Leader for an estimated saving of 235,365 kilowatt hours of energy, $34,519 in energy costs, and prevented 450,906 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions!

In 2009, Wisconsin Interfaith Climate & Energy Campaign (WICEC) and the Islamic Environmental Group of Wisconsin received the 2009/2010 ENERGY STAR Change the World Pledge Leader recognition for an estimated saving of 189,348 kilowatt hours of energy, $27,747, and prevented 356,186 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions!

In 2008, WICEC in partnership with the Islamic Environmental Group of Wisconsin received the 2008/2009 ENERGY STAR Change the World Pledge Leader recognition for helping to empower an estimated saving of 286,040 kilowatt hours of energy, $41,400, and preventing 539,170 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions!

In 2007, WICEC in partnership with the Islamic Environmental Group of Wisconsin had a successful campaign meeting our goal of obtaining 100 household pledges and helped to empower a saving of 84,600 kWh of energy and prevented 122,700 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions! We received the 2007 ENERGY STAR CHANGE A LIGHT PLEDGE LEADER recognition from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

To date, nearly two million people across the nation have pledged to take small, energy-saving steps that can change the world. If every American household took part in the ENERGY STAR Pledge, we would save more than $18 billion in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from more than 18 million cars.

Thank you for your support!
