Earthkeepers II Interfaith Energy Conservation Project

Energy Conservation

With help from a grant from the EPA and our technical partner, Delta Green, Earthkeepers II is carrying out 40 energy audits to churches, temples and synagogues throughout the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and are offering $30,000 in mini grants for help with energy upgrades.

Energy Audits

Thank you to the 40 congregations who participated in an energy audit and especially to all those that chose to make energy upgrades with the help of an EK II energy grant. This spring, $30,000 in checks were hand delivered by our team (Joe, Heidi, Kyra, Katelin, Tom and Adam) to congregations throughout the 15 counties of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Northern Wisconsin.

This money is being used to provide renovations to places of worship that will prevent tens of thousands of pounds of pollution from entering our environment. We applaud them for being true leaders of environmental stewardship in their communities.
