How to Join

NMIPL welcomes membership from churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and other faith communities, or from committees or groups within those bodies. To join, please pledge to do one or more of the following:

  • Educate your members about their responsibility as people of faith to be better stewards of the environment and to take immediate steps to counteract global warming
  • Arrange for an energy audit of your building
  • Based on the energy audit, make changes and improvements to improve energy efficiency and conservation
  • Utilize renewable energy wherever possible — e.g., subscribe to the maximum percentage of wind power available through PNM’s Blue Sky program, install solar panels, etc.
  • Look for ways to compensate for greenhouse gas emissions that cannot be reduced further by purchasing Green Tags or energy credits
  • Encourage your members to advocate for public policies that reduce the threat of global warming

Benefits of NMIPL membership include access to a variety of educational resources, the opportunity to network with other congregations committed to energy efficiency and energy conservation, and the possibility of qualifying for financial assistance to faith communities who need help in making the transition to energy-saving policies and practices. Further, NMIPL unites faith communities in a powerful and urgent call to action that may help persuade our fellow citizens and our leaders to make sustainable, renewable energy a national priority.

New NMIPL members will receive a copy of Sally Bingham’s book, LOVE GOD HEAL EARTH. NMIPL member congregations are asked to pay an annual fee of $50 and to report yearly describing their progress in fulfilling their pledges.
