Working with Indigenous Communities: How we are different than other energy companies

  1. Free , Prior and Informed Consent. Our IPP projects will only be built if the UNDRIP principles of consent are met. Consultation alone is not enough.
  2. Grassroots ownership. Share ownership will be available both to the band and individual community members.
  3. Not Government Dependent.  We may accept government grants to help fund portions of projects, but the project will not be dependent entirely on government funding.
  4. Controlled by community not large corporations.  The majority of Solshare ownership will always be individual community members, First Nations, co-ops and credit unions.  Our model aims to bring together both settler and indigenous communities  to create a new more democratic and equitable economic future.
