The Community Purchasing Alliance has over 130 churches, synagogues, mosques, schools and related organizations participating in its electricity, natural gas and waste hauling bulk purchasing procurements. More than 90% of participants choose to re-invest a meaningful portion of their savings in renewable energy or energy efficiency. Aggregating more than $6.5 million in purchased services, the group has achieved more than $600,000 in savings and more than $75,000 in rebates. The organization is now in the process of expanding to offer 12 additional services (including office supplies, copy machine leasing, HVAC maintenance, cleaning services, food and landscaping) and is formally incorporating as a cooperative. Community Purchasing Alliance is currently sponsored by the Washington Interfaith Network.
