The Clean Energy Co-op

For our May 23rd program, Joy Baxter will will present about The Clean Energy Co-op’s support of local solar projects. This presentation is a follow-up to last month’s program: Ron Celentano’s PA Solar Update.

In the Spring of 2021 a new finance option for nonprofits and community businesses looking to install solar became available in the Greater Philadelphia area. The Clean Energy Co-op supports local solar energy projects that benefit our community through a pooled funding approach. The proven and awarded model has helped nonprofits and community businesses ‘go solar’ through the investments of co-op members. Co-op members engage in socially conscious investing to enable the development of solar installations. Membership is attractive to residents that are not able to install solar on their own home or want to make a difference in their community. In addition to helping to finance solar installations, The Clean Energy Co-op educates nonprofits, especially Houses of Worship on all financing options for going solar.
