If you’re not already eligible to join Clean Energy Credit Union, you can consider joining one of the above organizations. An individual membership in American Solar Energy Society, for example, currently costs as little as $10 (NOTE: you must enter the discount code "CECU15" and select a Digital-Only Basic membership).

After confirming your eligibility, you would then open a "share account" (i.e. savings account) with a $5 minimum deposit which would serve as your ownership share in Clean Energy Credit Union. Once someone becomes a member of the Credit Union, they are a member for life.

Lastly, here are some things you need to know before clicking the “join” button below:

b. The account number and routing number of one of your existing bank accounts from which you want to transfer money (this information is also on each of your checks);
