Community Solar


A Cooperative Answer to Community Energy Needs

Our Co-operative Community Solar project is underway
Subscribe to PowerMarket in the meantime

Together with the Cooperative Development Institute, CEBE is launching a cooperatively-owned community solar project. Our goals are to allow members to keep their money locally while choosing renewable. Members will be able to keep their energy costs stable and feel comfortable transitioning their households and transportation to electricity, knowing the power is generated by the sun. 

Our steering committee is meeting regularly to finalize the scope and structure of the first project. We've got a site, financial models, and interested subscribers. As a co-op, decisions will be made cooperatively by founding subscriber-owners.

While we move forward in the implementation phase of this project, don't hesitate to sign up for Community Solar now!


CEBE has partnered with PowerMarket. When you subscribe to PowerMarket, you'll receive 15% off your electricity, and CEBE will receive a $25 donation when you enter the promo code "CEBE."

The solar project providing your energy will be located in Maine, and PowerMarket does employ people based in Maine, though they are a for-profit company headquartered out-of-state. Several of CEBE's grid-tied staff and board members are PowerMarket subscribers -- reach out if you have questions!
