There has never been a better time to go solar
Solar technology has come a long way in recent years. It is more efficient and cheaper now than it has ever been. By making your purchase through the Antigonish Community Energy Coop, you benefit from bulk purchasing prices.
How it Works
Join the Coop! A lifetime household membership to ACE is $5.00*. Lifetime organizational memberships are $50.00*. JOIN NOW
All members are entitled to one free site assessment by one of our installers. The assessment will detail any work that needs to be done to prepare for installation (ex. roof repairs) and give you a breakdown of costs. Registration for assessment is now open: REQUEST A SITE ASSESSMENT
We are organizing our fourth group buy for early spring 2019. Interested members are asked to confirm their commitment with a $500.00 deposit by February 28th, 2019. Installations will be completed in order in which deposits are received. MAKE YOUR DEPOSIT.
The ACE Coop installers will negotiate with suppliers to get the best deal on solar equipment, taking into consideration: shipping, efficiency and price. Group-buyers will be invoiced for the solar equipment as well as our 2% Surcharge** no less than 10 days before the order is placed. Members who wish to take advantage of financing through the East Coast Credit Union will be eligible for an Eco-Line of Credit (prime +1% or better).
Once the Coop receives all of the member's equipment from the manufacturers, your installer will contact you to schedule your installation. Remember that installations generally occur in the order in which deposits were received. Labour and installation costs are billed following completion of the work.
*Please note that we add a $0.75 service change for Household Membership paid via PayPal transaction to offset the additional costs of
this convenient payment method. The service fee for Institutional Memberships is $2.00. If you prefer to pay by cash or cheque please
contact us to make arrangements.
** 75% of the 2% Surcharge is dedicated to energy poverty reduction initiatives in our communities, such as solar power systems for low-
income housing. The remaining 25% may go to the same initiatives, or also to any required operating expenses of the co-op, such as
the website, banking fees and advertising.
