The Community Energy Co-op (CEC) is a community-based co-operative with the mission to invest and participate in renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency projects in New Brunswick. In 2010 the CEC began the implementation of its business strategy, which aims to be financially viable long-term, maximize local employment, and reflect the cooperative social and environmental ethics of our mission. We need committed, visionary members in the co-op to help make this happen. While currently focused on small scale RE installations along with feasibility plans and consulting, we hope to soon be able to undertake small scale wind turbine manufacturing as a value- added employment generation option. As we grow, we will also endeavour to raise funds to move ahead on a community-scale renewable energy project under the new New Brunswick Community Energy Policy. The CEC operates by cooperative principles, including the principle of one-member, one-vote for decisions at member’s meetings.
