"Co-ops develop the ability of communities to do things for themselves; you don’t have to wait for a government program. Being a member of co-op and doing this good stuff also empowers you to do other good projects. It doesn’t have to be energy."

- Bill Jones, Co-Chair of TREC Board of Directors

"I like the fact that Solar Bonds are motivated by a financial benefit as well as a community benefit as well as an environmental benefit. So they’ve got that triple bottom line value, and that means something to me and is worthy of my money."

- Scott Snowden, Principal at Flywheel Strategic

"The way our society and economy is going is not viable. SolarShare is one small component in making it viable. The returns are decent and the people in the community are a pleasure to meet up with from time to time."

"SolarShare is one of the few investment vehicles that comes with true hope; you can invest in a lot of other things but you’re not quite sure if they’re going to be good for us in ten or twenty or thirty years—but with solar you can be sure."

- Jim O’Reilly, Member

"I just had my roof re-roofed and it cost a ton of money to get the solar panels off and put them on again. If you’re interested in contributing to solar energy, the BEST thing to do is give your money to SolarShare and they put panels on somebody else’s roof, which is more profitable and you’ll make a bigger impact."

- Lee Adamson, Toronto Resident

"At CAPE we advocate for a healthy planet to improve the health of people. Investing in SolarShare allows us to put our money where our mouth is and rest easy knowing that we are living our values by supporting community-owned, clean, healthy, renewable energy."

- Kim Perrotta, Executive Director, CAPE

"The Catherine Donnelly Foundation’s decision to divest from fossil fuels was motivated by a strong financial logic as well as a deep concern for environmental stewardship. Solar Bonds are an appealing investment that comfortably aligns with our environmental focus."

- Jason Dudek, Past Chair, Catherine Donnelly Foundation

"We were pleased to find an investment that offered a good return, good security, and sustainability all in one package!"

- Board of the Ontario Humanist Society
