FORT ERIE TIMES: Shares for sale in solar co-op

22 Jan 2015 | Archives

Elizabeth Chitty and Tung Trinh are in the solar-generated electricity business.

While their involvement in renewable energy might be small scale, they are part of a larger movement. The St. Catharines residents are bondholders in a co-op that pools money to build roof-top and small ground-mount installations to harness the power of the sun.

Chitty and Trinh are investors in SolarShare, a renewable energy co-op launched in 2011 that owns approximately $30 million in solar assets. Chitty and Trinh are among the co-op’s 750 members who have invested more than $10 million in solar projects across the province, such as the solar panel installations above the Value Village building on Ontario St. in St. Catharines.
