The principles:

Underlying Multiple Values cooperation:
We are a local community on renewable energy
We contribute to CO2-reduction
We are a non-profit cooperation run by volunteers

Shared:
Cooperationmembers all benefit the generated solarpower and cost-reduction on the energy-bill.
The potential risks and damages are equally shared between participants

Collective:
We make use of the time, knowledge, competencies of members to organize the cooperation
We collaborate with local suppliers of solarsystems
We collaborate with local government

The design

We create a membership-cooperation

The community

The community consists of local citizens, small-companies and council, together realizing solar-installations.

Value proposition

We create connection and exchange between residents of a local community, and offer them an approachable possibility to generate their own solar power, in case they don’t have a suitable roof or space. In this way, we contribute to improve environmental and social commitment in achieving a CO2-neutral region.
Future improvement
Potential members can partially ‘pay’ their membership by contributing with their talents and competencies to organisational tasks.
