Welcome to SPICE
The Solar Power Investment Cooperative of Edmonton (SPICE) is a community investment cooperative focused on the development of renewable energy projects that bring community benefits to the Greater Edmonton area.
Creating competitive and ethical community investments with people, planet, and profits weighted equally is SPICE's primary commitment.
Our Investment Advantage
We offer comprehensive, competitive, and clean community energy investment solutions for individuals, organizations and businesses.
Diversify & DivestSPICE investments are Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) and Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) eligible and with us, you have choice. Our offerings allow our investors to match their money with meaning. Choose to diversify and stabilize your portfolio by adding local and ethical clean energy investments.
Community BenefitOur green energy investment opportunities not only bring benefits to the environment but also to growing your communities. SPICE projects capture their benefits through a Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) or Community Benefit Statement (CBS), so you can be sure profits stay local.
Online MonitoringWe exist to grow your pocket as well as your understanding of energy, and energy investments. Online access to the investors platform and updates will help you understand the status of your projects, and any other information that is relevant to you.
Tangible AssetsYou can rest assured that your investments are backed by real assets. SPICE investments are local clean energy assets which you can see in your own community, not just on a financial report. The benefits of your investments will be tangible in your very own community.
Competitive ReturnsSPICE takes due diligence seriously. We make extra effort to review each project's details and success before creating an offering. We work hard to only source projects that offer you competitive and stable returns.
GHG ReductionsThe investments SPICE selects to offer have greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions prioritized equally with community benefits and profit. When you invest with SPICE, you invest in meaningful action to mitigate climate change, putting your money to work for good.
