Our Partners Program
The Acorn Energy Co-op has developed partnerships with local (and some non-local) businesses who are willing to offer benefits to our members.
These are divided into three principal categories: Energy Products and Services Partners, Retail Partners, and Restaurants as shown on the list below, which also shows the benefits provided by each Partner.
Co-op partners are companies whose products or services are made available at a discount to members through the Acorn Energy Co-op.
The amount of the discount is listed individually with each affiliated company, providing substantial savings for our members.
Additional benefits will be posted as partnership agreements become finalized. That these benefits are being offered to our members shows the considerable support of the business community for the goals of the Acorn Energy Co-op in its endeavor to provide a more energy efficient, and energy sufficient, future for the residents of our region. So, thank you, Partners!
