Why become a member?

Becoming a member-owner of Cooperative Energy Futures means buying into the vision that you and your community can be producers, not just consumers, in the new clean-energy economy.

Through CEF’s network, services and innovative financing structures, you can become a member of a network of people working together, supporting each other, and creating a community-powered energy future. Even non-members are welcome to arrange workshops with us, as we seek to engage all stakeholders in creating communities that are plugged into the clean-energy economy.

CEF membership benefits:

  • A lifetime membership for $25 allows you to participate in annual members’ meetings and run for and elect our Board of Directors.
  • Discounts on DIY energy saving products and workshops that are open to the general public
  • Access to members-only programs like insulation and solar bulk-buying or community ownership of clean energy
  • Receive distributions on the profit generated from the business you do with us — we build wealth together.
  • Access to innovative energy saving tools and build relationships that allow you and your community to build a cooperative energy future.
  • Members can earn finder’s fees on projects that they bring to the cooperative that are completed. Please view our Template Finders Fee for details.
  • Members can invest in Preferred Stock at certain points when the co-op offers it. CEF currently has Preferred Stock available for purchase through February 2020. In our last offering (2017), Cooperative Energy Futures raised $501,000 in member equity.
