The Benefits of Membership
Legacy Solar Co-op is about leveraging the power of community to grow solar and energy efficiency in Wisconsin. By becoming a member you are truly helping to build a sustainable legacy that helps protect the earth through the growth of renewable solar energy as a viable alternative to fossil fuels.
I became involved with the Legacy Solar Coop several years ago starting with a simple membership. After attending an annual meeting to gain a better sense of the organization, I came away impressed with the commitment of the leaders of the cooperative. I’ve worked for non-profit organizations most of my life and so appreciated the dedication shown to this young organization.

When you become a member of the Co-op, you can tap into a wealth of knowledge and experience on how to save energy and money with energy efficiency and solar projects.
As a member, you have access to:
Maybe you have too many trees shading your property. Problem solved! Buy solar bonds to help develop solar legacy projects on ideal roofs across the state, while earning between 4% and 6% interest back. Get a virtual greening by investing in a Co-op who shares your values with regard to smart energy policy. (That’s not to say you can’t still save energy in your home or business.)
Even if you can’t do solar at your home or business, we can help you buy S2S (Switch2Solar) certificates, which allow you to claim that your electricity comes from Wisconsin solar, and not from a far-away or dirty resource like fracked methane gas or coal.

We can show you how to trim your energy budget through intelligent planning and implementation of best practices as well as best technologies. With regard to paying for energy retrofits for your home or business, we can show you how to reduce your loads and make the best out of your solar energy investment. And, we can help you find the best financing solution to make your solar dreams a reality!
