Investing in your community has never been easier.

The Co-operative develops or purchases solar power projects in partnership with area schools, institutions, municipalities, and businesses.

If you live in Eastern Ontario, join our growing Co-operative and add your voice to the region’s renewable energy transition. If you don’t live in that area, you can still invest!

Electricity produced by these projects is then sold to the grid or directly to the project host, moving towards a renewable energy landscape in the area

Profits are returned to you in the form of interest payments or dividends

Earn a return and support the clean energy transition.  Read about upcoming investment opportunities.
