LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - A group of eight religious congregations in the greater Lansing area is asking for help to go green and save green.

The Capital Area Chapter of Michigan Interfaith Power and Light is attempting to raise $35,000 to put solar energy panels on the roof of the Southside Community Coalition Center. The center provides programs and services for low-income children and families. Coalition leaders say the solar panels will soon provide all of the center’s electricity, saving $5,000 a year.

David Weiner is a member of the Southside Community Coalition.

“We have a community garden,” Weiner said. “We have a coalition with the city to develop a park south of here, we are very much into greening our environment, making it beautiful and making it sustainable.” So far, they have raised $20,000 of the $35,000 they will need to pay for the solar panels.
