Arkansas Interfaith Power & Light: Energy Efficiency Contest


An aging church in Arkansas receives an “energy makeover” to improve efficiency and save on utility costs.

Mt. Comfort Presbyterian Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas has been standing for more than 130 years on a site that was originally used as a hospital during the Civil War. The building was poorly insulated and in need of an upgrade. The church entered an energy efficiency contest and won $3,000 from Arkansas Interfaith Power & Light for an “energy makeover.” The energy efficiency improvements included using soy-based insulation to seal leaks in the church’s attic.

Arkansas Interfaith Power & Light’s mission is to “work with faith communities to address the causes and consequences of global climate change through education and public policy advocacy.” Learn more about Interfaith Power & Light’s programs and policy positions.
