Purpose & Values
We facilitate community renewable energy investment, focusing on solar projects that bring local benefits. We strive to create a world where investments measured by a triple bottom line (people, planet, and profits) are a default.
The Solar Power Investment Cooperative of Edmonton (SPICE) is a local member-owned Opportunity Development Cooperative (ODC) founded in 2012 enabling community solar projects by aggregating local capital and funding bankable projects. We offer reliable local solar investments that stimulate growth of communities, access investor tax credits, and contribute to the democratization of energy.
SPICE is a cooperative, which is by no means an accident. SPICE embodies the 7 cooperative principles, continuously striving to share their benefits with other organizations and cooperatives alike through open collaboration.

SPICE provides socially and environmentally responsible local investment options with visible community benefits. Led by a highly experienced and passionate board, SPICE is a reliable resource for knowledge and aims to create a sustainable and replicate model for community solar investment which will thrive independently of programs and policies.
