Inspiring story in Portugal


Founded in Portugal in 2013, Coopérnico is a renewable energy co-operative that harnesses solar power for the benefit of the local community. More than 80 citizens have helped finance 4 photovoltaic (PV) projects, which now have a total installed capacity of 114 kW.

Coopérnico's projects contribute to social development as well as green energy. The cooperative rents the roofs of socially-minded institutions for its PV projects, providing them with extra income. At the end of the lease, the co-operative will offer the solar apparatus to the hosting institutions for free.
