Questions & Answers

GreenStar’s Owner Investment Program directly benefits both the Co-op, and its owners, keeping local money local. The more owners invest to help finance our relocation and expansion project, the less the Co-op needs to rely on bank loans. This means better rates and terms for GreenStar on any necessary financing. It also means our owners will financially benefit — we prefer paying dividends to our owners, instead of interest to banks!

We are counting on our owners to help us reach our goal of $2.5 million!
