Please indicate “Cooperative shares” as the intended purpose.


  1. After acceptance of the declaration of accession by the Board of Directors of Solar-Connect eG, you shall receive a written confirmation of membership from us.


Economic activity, social responsibility and ecological sustainability do not have to be opposites. As an investing member you participate in the economic success of our cooperative – and at the same time enable social and sustainable development in our partner countries.

Investing members acquire at least 10 shares in the cooperative, which corresponds to an amount of 2,000 euros. Beyond the minimum share, you may acquire as many additional shares as you wish at 200 euros. There is no obligation to make additional contributions.

As a member, you will be regularly informed about the activities of Solar-Connect eG. Once a year you also have the opportunity to attend the general assembly of Solar-Connect eG. The general assembly also decides on the distribution of profits. We expect an annual dividend of approx. 3% for members.

If you wish to terminate your membership, you have two options:

  • You terminate your membership by giving two years’ notice;
  • you immediately transfer (sell) your shares to another person who then becomes a member.


Your commitment enables

  • households and families the purchase of a solar system
  • the creation of jobs and the development of a local solar trade
  • sustainable social and economic development in developing countries

Even with the minimum share of 2,000 euros you can – depending on the size – enable up to 15 households to purchase a solar system. And not just once, but continuously! Because as soon as a solar system is paid off, your capital will be used to finance further solar systems.
