The workers from local communities where we build solar energy plants not only get paid a salary but get paid shares that make them owners of the energy plant. That means that they will get paid dividends from the project for the rest of their lives.
This is just one of the ways our cooperative community ownership model encourages local ownership. The ownership is also open to other local residents, First Nation governments, municipalities, businesses and non-profits. The ultimate goal is for the entire plant to be be locally owned.
Local ownership and employment is just one of the benefits our solar energy plants bring to communities. For remote diesel communities it also reduces the pollution from diesel generators.
