People Power Solar Cooperative

Join the movement for a just and equitable clean energy future

People Power Solar Cooperative envisions a transition to renewable energy that is:

Inclusive

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 it isn’t just the wealthy who gain from the transition to renewables.

Cooperative

People can do extraordinary things when working together.

Cooperatives are a time-tested model for building aggregated people power, lowering costs, and growing community wealth.

Immediate

There’s no time to wait.

Our planet is running out of time and half of people in the U.S. still can’t own solar. We provide the technical and administrative support to allow everyone – including renters and low-income homeowners – to get involved now, buy in, and propel our transition to a clean energy future.

OUR APPROACH TO COMMUNITY SOLAR IS:

Community-Led

Local leaders and residents become decision makers and bring solar to communities

Community-Financed

Everyday people can buy shares and earn modest returns while helping the planet

Community-Owned

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 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 bring together many groups and solar projects, building aggregated people power to lower costs, create good jobs, shape public policy, and more
