At these events, the Sol Train team will host information sessions at ten churches about the smart and simple ways to switch to solar at home. Enrollment ends April 30, 2017.

NCIPL Director Susannah Tuttle says, “The call to care for those in need is central to our faith. As climate change impacts lives and livelihoods throughout the world, we have the power to translate our compassion into action. In a time when partisanship and politics paralyze conversation; people of faith have the opportunity to inspire and empower Americans with hope-filled climate solutions.
“We can no longer be complacent about the dangers that come with burning fossil fuels. We have witnessed smog-filled skies and bursting coal ash ponds. Greenhouse gases are warming our planet. This threatens not only the natural places we love, but our very livelihood. Every week we hear of another beach town or port city underwater due to the double punch of rising seas and extreme flooding. Inland, farmers struggle to bring food to market amidst harsh drought, severe storms, and unprecedented fluctuations in weather. This crisis will continue to worsen, unless we take action now.“
Kathy Miller, Co-Founder and CEO of Yes Solar Solutions added, “We are honored to partner with the NC Interfaith Power and Light council, and the non-profit Next Climate, in this message of hope and the power of solar.” Yes and Southern Energy Management are the North Carolina solar installation companies that were selected for the Sol Train project and have provided discounted pricing on installation and components.
Next stops include Greensboro, Durham, Chapel Hill and more, ending in Wilmington. For more information about the dates and times visit www.soltrain.us.
