What this means for you and for Co-op Power:
1.) We’re turning our member equity into a business that will give us a clean energy product many members can use directly to fuel their vehicles or oil heat systems.
2.) If you’re a member, you’ll get more benefits from Co-op Power in the next three years. We’ll be earning profits that can be used to develop products that everyone can use.
3.) We will have more assets that can be used to leverage other community-based business development projects in your community.
4.) We’re moving Co-op Power from a good idea to a cooperative that can really make a difference. We’ll be able to move out of start-up and into full operations with paid staff, benefits that Co-op Power members can use on a regular basis, and enhanced technical assistance to community-based business development
projects, all ready to support the hundreds of Co-op Power volunteers working on justice and sustainability in their communities.

Hope to see you there if you have some flexibility during the work day!
Looking forward to talking with you more about what this means for you, for Co-op Power, for our community.
PS Please note. We’ve heard that there is some confusion about our biodiesel plant. A biodiesel plant is NOT a wood burning biomass plant. The biodiesel plant will use a chemical process to change recycled vegetable oil to biodiesel and glycerine. Please help us spread the word! This is simply a good thing.
Manager, Co-op Power
