Another Successful Milestone

Jun 25, 2012


Over fifty members joined the board of directors for important business updates, exciting project announcements, and an entertaining social gathering at the first SolarShare Annual General Meeting. A few messages were unanimous from the presenters – that we are unique, we are proud, and we are entering an exciting new phase of growth. 

Some exciting announcements included:

Board of Directors Election

After an exciting election, congratulations to Michelle Bird, Glen Estill, Jeff Harti, and Shon Sorensen. They will be joining Mike Brigham (President), Brian Isler (Secretary), David Robertson (Treasurer), Thomas Haubenreisser (Director), and Rebecca Black (Director) on the SolarShare Board of Directors.

Construction Beginning Soon

A new project will soon be under construction in St. Catherine’s, Ontario. The new 140 kW DC system will be the 19th installation in the SolarShare portfolio. Acquired from project developer Moose Power, the system should be up and running by the end of the year.  The site has yet to be named - stay tuned!

Referral Month

As the co-op grows in number of kilowatts, so must the co-op grow in number of members. Be an ambassador and champion of the model wherever you go; the new members will follow. Referral Month begins now and ends July 31st. Refer a new member-investor to SolarShare and receive a $20 gift card to Urban Cyclist, MEC, or a co-op of your choice. The grand prize winner (person who refers the greatest number of new member-investors) will win a choice of a deluxe spa package from Elixir Organic Spa or a night for two at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.  See the details and important terms here >>

At the end of the night, co-op members, board members, and the newly elected board celebrated a fantastic year for SolarShare and a rainy but merry Summer Solstice.  Thanks to everyone who participated and we hope to see you again next year!
