This sixth video of the series on the Eco-Energy Fair is about Options For Green Energy in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Options For Green Energy explains how community financing works for a green energy co-operative development as follows:

In return for your loan to the co-operative, you will receive a guaranteed rate of return of 5% plus the inflation rate (up to a 5% annualized average) of the price of electricity in Toronto . This means that when the cost of electricity goes up, your rate of return will also go up.  Your loan, pooled together with others, will build a large-scale green energy development in Ontario.  Once built, the energy generated will be sold to the Ontario Power Authority, who is committed to paying a higher rate for green energy through the Government of Ontario’s Feed in Tariff program.  The revenue from the electricity will be used to pay your return.”
