People Power Solar Cooperative envisions a transition to renewable energy that is:
The financial benefits of clean energy belong to everyone.
The solar industry generates tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars. We ensure that every community can gain from the transition to renewables.
People can do extraordinary things when working together.
Cooperatives are a time-tested model for building aggregated people power, creating a movement for community-driven wealth, health, jobs, and more.
There’s no time to wait.
Our planet is running out of time and half of the U.S. still can’t own solar. We provide the support to enable everyone – especially renters and low-income homeowners – to get involved now, buy in, and steward community-owned solar projects.
OUR APPROACH TO COMMUNITY SOLAR IS:
Local leaders and residents initiate and steward projects in their own communities
Everyday people can invest and earn modest returns while helping their community and the planet
Communities build wealth and power by owning and controlling energy in the long term
PEOPLE POWER SOLAR COOPERATIVE HELPS EVERYDAY PEOPLE FINANCE, BUILD, AND CO-OWN ENERGY BY CREATING:
A Plug-and-Play Model for Community-Owned Solar
We provide a technical and administrative backbone so community groups can easily organize their own solar projects
Access to Capital
We navigate legal compliance so communities can access capital from diverse sources, including investments from everyday people like those in your community
Aggregated People Power
We offer support for many groups and solar projects, building aggregated people power to lower costs, create good jobs, shape public policy, and more
