Investing in your community has never been easier.

The Co-operative develops or purchases renewable energy projects in partnership with schools, institutions, municipalities, and businesses.

If you live in Eastern Ontario or in the county where one of our projects are located, join our growing Co-operative and invest. This capital is pooled by the Co-operative, and used for project development or acquisition of existing projects.

Electricity produced by these projects is then sold to the grid or directly to the project host, moving towards a 100% 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.
Join Eastern Ontario’s largest renewable energy co-operative, and help make a 100% renewable energy future possible!
