Join the movement for a just and equitable clean energy future
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 it isn’t just the wealthy who 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, lowering costs, and growing community wealth.
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:
Local leaders and residents become decision makers and bring solar to communities
Everyday people can buy shares and earn modest returns while helping the planet
Communities build wealth and power by owning and controlling energy in the long term
