Solar Bonds are back on Sale!

Community Bond Showcase: Success!

Mar 23, 2015

ZooShare, CSI, SolarShare and TREC, working together to achieve greatness. 

Community Bonds took on a greater meaning at the recent event we co-organized with ZooShare Biogas Co-operative and the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI). 

Members, investors, and supporters from all three organizations joined the celebration and we heard updates from their representatives. While Community Bonds have typically had a special meaning with regard to a type of alternative investment, the event proved how people power can be transformative in "bonding communities" and achieving social and environmental benefits. The event was joined by many of the other individuals and organizations supporting the same goals. 

Highlights Included: 

  • A TREC presentation on how a very small sector became a massive tool for financing community power
  • Announcement that ZooShare sold out of bonds after raising $2.2 million!
  • Reveal of two new SolarShare rooftop projects and announcement of $9 million in bond sales
  • CSI talked about the many faces and causes behind their success and also facilitated an entertaining social activity that brought everyone closer together (the wine helped too)! 

How can you follow up after the event?
