Demonstrate renewable energy projects at the community scale
Invest in our community to generate a positive 'return' for everyone
Stretch beyond what SEEDS (as a non-profit) could do
In May 2014, we become a fully independent, separate legal entity, in the form of a cooperative.
Our community is northeastern Pennsylvania, specifically Wayne and Pike counties. We live here and want to see the community thrive and grow sustainably. In 2011, with SEEDS developing community education, local installer
training, and state incentive encouragement, our area was third (per capita)
within PA for installed solar photovoltaic (PV) generation. But renewable energy projects require large up-front capital investments, and with no PA state incentives remaining plus the dispersed rural nature of our area makes outside financing difficult. Yet solar PV brings many positive long-term benefits, both financially and in other ways (e.g. less pollution, lower carbon footprint, greater local resiliency and independence). With the Clean Energy Co-op, we have decided to invest in ourselves, in our neighbors and in our future. Join us!
