Going Green Kits Available

Thanks to the Community Grant from the Louisville Sustainability Council, Kentucky IPL now has several beginner level energy-efficiency kits to give out to faith communities! If your faith community suffers from the financial drain of heating and cooling, aging buildings, or is looking to be more energy efficient, you can reach out to our Outreach Coordinator Audrie for help on getting a kit. The kit includes several items such as LED light bulbs, outlet sealers, power strips, and more. Kits are still available for Louisville-based congregations and will be given on a first-come, first serve basis. Email Audrie at
