Co-op Power is a consumer-owned energy cooperative, working to create a multi-class, multi-racial movement for a sustainable and just energy future.
Areas Served: MA, NY, and VT.
The Program: We have several models for Community Solar ranging from simple, no-money-down power purchase agreements that can save you up to 15% off your electricity to cooperatively owned projects that are controlled by local communities, where participants are eligible for all tax credits, electricity savings, and renewable energy credits, that provide free electricity once you pay off your initial investment in 6-8 years.
Areas Served: MA, NY, and VT
The Model: Co-op Power's rooftop solar financing program can help homeowners, nonprofits, businesses, and municipalities install solar. We bring you great pricing through our bulk purchasing agreements and can provide 100% of the financing for nonprofits, colleges and universities, and municipalities. We negotiate on your behalf with contractors and financiers to get you the best price.
Areas Served: MA, VT, NH, CT, NY
The Product: We make biodiesel from recycled cooking oil at our biodiesel plant, Northeast Biodiesel, in Greenfield, MA. (Co-op Power members own 73% of this biodiesel plant!) A 12% or higher blend of biodiesel with ultra low sulphur diesel burns cleaner than natural gas! Biodiesel is the only clean fuel for oil heat systems and diesel engines. Sign up for our biodiesel buying groups!
