Who We Are

New York Interfaith Power and Light is an independent nonprofit (501C3) organization established in 2004.  We represent over 110 communities of faith and thousands of individuals to be the moral response to climate change in New York State.

We are part of a consortium of forty other state-based IPL’s loosely organized under a national organization, Interfaith Power & Light.  Beyond our primary concerns within New York State, we collaborate with other IPL’s on regional and national issues.

Our membership includes clergy, lay leaders, lay members and experts in the energy sector.  From Long Island to Buffalo, NYIPL works with houses of worship, interfaith organizations, judicatory bodies, and other environmental organizations to reduce our carbon footprints and advance climate friendly legislation.

Our Executive Director is Rabbi Glenn Jacob.  He can be reached at gjacob@nyipl.org.
