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 with a triple bottom line (people, planet, and profits) are the default.

SPICE was created by citizens of Alberta, for citizens of Alberta. Since 2012,  the cooperative has worked hard to gain the trust of the local Alberta and Edmonton communities.

SPICE is seen today as the go-to local resource for knowledge on both the solar and renewables industry, as well as ethical, democratic, energy investing. With a do-no-harm mentality, SPICE ensures fair return on investment for projects which enhance the future of our communities.

SPICE is a cooperative, which is by no means an accident. SPICE embodies the 7 cooperative principles so continuously strives to share their benefits with other organizations and cooperatives alike through open collaboration.
