Your co-op – NICE is run by the community for the benefit of the community

Traditional energy companies aim to maximise profits that reaches only a small number of individuals. Our community-owned co-operative is based on a decentralised and far more equitable model that helps the environment, helps the local community, and is built upon principles of fairness.

The 7 Co-Operative Principles

  1. Voluntary, open membership.
  2. Democratic member control.
  3. Member economic participation.
  4. Autonomy and independence.
  5. Education, training and information.
  6. Co-operation among co-operatives.
  7. Concern for the community.

NICE is a society governed by Rules and abiding by the core co-operative principles listed above.

NICE is incorporated as a Community Benefit Society under the Industrial and Provident Society Act (Northern Ireland) 1969 – this is a type of co-operative owned by the community.

NICE members are the roof providers and any individual from the public who supports the objectives and invests in the society.
