By |2024-02-06T15:13:19-08:00February 6th, 2024|Categories: Annual Reports, SSREC News|



As of March 31, 2023 we had 178 shareholders (minus 1 deceased whose estate donated his share, and 1 member who moved away and was reimbursed) for a total of 176 active members.

As the market has changed, and the price of solar panels has decreased, it is no longer reasonable to do bulk purchases.

The main reasons for becoming a SSREC member now are:

i) support our general advocacy and education work;

ii) support our advocacy with BC Hydro and intervenor status with the BC Utilities Commission

iii) obtain an assessment of the solar capabilities of people’s location

iv) support community solar installation in the future.
