Since 2012, SOCEC has been working to build clean, green energy projects into the downtown area.
A grassroots movement built on sustainability and co-operation, we believe in building our community with the power of renewable energy.
what is a co-op?
A Co-operative is an organization that is run by volunteer board directors, and is equally owned by its members. The membership body votes individuals onto the board of directors, who in turn run the organization and further the mission and vision of the organization.

At SOCEC, our goal is to serve our membership body and create renewable energy projects in and around the Greater Toronto Area which promote the use of sustainable energy sources in everyday life.

WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS DO WE CREATE?
SOCEC specializes in creating small-scale power stations in open areas such as parks and community areas, focusing on practical needs such as cell phone charging or public WiFi access. This kind of project fits right into our Mission and Vision for empowering communities.
The benefit of the project's size and type is that it promotes awareness for renewable energy, while also being practically beneficial to its community. You can click on this link to read our mission and vision statements.
At SOCEC, we believe the best way to promote the positive awareness of renewable energy is to display the impact it has on our world.
