This initiative, first launched at the mosque on Friday, December 14, was a success! We distributed 168 LED bulbs and plan to make this a monthly endeavor!

This is an interfaith effort to promote the use of clean energy! Community Interfaith dialogue on Islam (CIDI), Masjid AbuBakr Al-Seddiq (MAAS), and Tom Williamson of Rochester Faith & Solar Coalition will be distributing *FREE* LED bulbs at the mosque on 17 N. Broadway to congregants as they leave the Friday payer. The purpose of this effort is to help community members save money on monthly utility costs and gain understanding of the environmental and monetary impacts of using clean energy sources.

These bulbs are meant for those who pay their own electric utility but may not be able to budget the costs of the bulbs.

The bulbs will be distributed from the adjacent mosque library (right of main entrance). This initiative is open to the entire Rochester community, regardless of faith or spiritual affiliation.

On November 3rd 2015 CIDI, along with the Sierra Club, Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light, and the Muslim Student Association of UMR presented Interfaith Climate Change: From Faith to Action.
