"Investing in Renewable Energy is Kick-ass."
Solar Share Mississauga (Water View) example. Some of the main reasons that people were interested in becoming part of a local co-op were expressed as follows: Wanting to see a reduction in "CO2 emissions." Concern for a stable future energy source, home not being suited for the FIT but wanting to benefit from investing in solar, democratic, proactive, clean, local resilience, "spirit of community,ownership and opportunity to profit as a community," ethical, fair, just, local were all terms that were used. As one attendee put it, "Renewable energy is kick-ass. Investing in renewable energy is kick-ass." I think that says it all!
