Buy a Piece of the Sun for Community Development

The Social Enterprise Hub wants to be innovative in energy use, so our next steps are solar panels. Working with Nexgen we have designed a suite of 60 Solar Panels on the roof of The HUB. This will be a true test of solar energy production in Saint John, a community many people think is too foggy for solar to work. As part of the project a Real-time energy meter posted on our website so everyone can see what energy we are producing at any given time.

You can be a part of this innovative step for Saint John by buying a piece of a panel, a whole panel or however many panels you’d like. Please choose a donation amount below, or if you have any questions, please contact Seth at
