Invest with us

Join CED Co-op to crowdfund renewable energy in Ontario.

Why invest in renewable energy?

Powering a better world

You want to create a better world. So do we. Together, we can make a difference. We believe shared values make for great partnerships. Climate change threatens our social progress. Investing in solar is an active strategy to help ensure that hard-won social gains are protected from future disruption. Climate justice is a key pillar for creating a better society.

Local economic development

All of the money paid for electricity currently flows out of our communities. By investing in local power generation, in partnership with CED Co-op, all of the money paid for electricity from our installations stays local where it is generated– benefiting investors, service providers and employers. Green power is good for you and your community.

Meet greenhouse gas emissions targets

Communities across Ontario are committing to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For example, Waterloo Region has set a goal of a 50% reduction by 2030 ( It will take the actions of all of us, as individuals and organizations, to achieve these targets. We provide an investment opportunity that creates a path to realize these GHG reductions.

Diversify and divest from fossil fuels

Environmentally-conscious investors are affecting positive change by divesting their holdings in traditional energy sources and directly funding renewables technology. The ongoing electrification of transportation and industry provides a historic opportunity to diversify your portfolio and support initiatives that contribute to stabilizing climate change.
