Happy July to you all! I feel like the luckiest guy in all of Wisconsin to be working with such a forward leaning group of people in our Co-op. I want to thank all of you who decided to join our Co-op ($25/yr or $100/lifetime equity membership) in recent months.
Our membership has grown from 96 in December of 2017 to now over 115 by the end of June of 2018. We have provided over $800,000 in solar loans through our Slice-of-Sun bond program, and hope to double that by the end of the year.
That’s right, double.
Because of the success of our programs, we have as many as 15 new community institutions who are hoping to get solar projects funded by the end of the year. That means we need to grow our membership and our bondholders along with it.
So far in 2018, our Co-op has helped organize and develop nearly $1 million of solar in Wisconsin. We want to stay on this trajectory and develop (and help finance) another $1 million of solar projects in our fine state before year’s end.
