Welcome to ZooShare!

We're building a 500-kilowatt biogas plant at the Toronto Zoo.

Each year we will turn the Zoo’s annual manure output and food waste from local grocery stores into electricity, heat, and fertilizer...

...And give 10% of profits to the Zoo.

...And remove the equivalent of 2,100 cars from the road.

...And pay above average returns to our co-op members - 7% annually over 7 years

Poo.  Power.  Profits.

ZooShare presents:

The BUZZ

  • Access to clean, affordable

    and reliable energy has been a cornerstone of the world's increasing prosperity and economic growth since the beginning of the industrial revolution. I believe our use of energy in the 21st century must also be sustainable, and I jumped at the chance to make ZooShare a reality as a way to demonstrate to our policy makers and communities how we can implement sustainable energy solutions. I encourage you to take a positive step for our future and join me to make ZooShare happen.

  • I invested in ZooShare

    because I agree with its founding principles; specifically recycling and supporting the local community. I like the fact that ZooShare is ultimately a community focused project designed with sustainability and environmentally friendly principles at its core.

    - Adam Whidden

  • I want to congratulate ZooShare

    for their innovative project. It offers a unique opportunity for the public to learn about the diversity within Ontario's supply generation mix, while providing clean, local power for a marquee tourism destination in Ontario.

    - Bob Chiarelli, Ontario Minister of Energy

  • ZooShare is

    the kind of innovative green energy solution with the power to inspire that our Bullfrog Builds program was created to support.

    - Ron Seftel, Bullfrog Power

  • ZooShare combines the best

    of social and capital benefits. It generates healthy energy and the possibility of a return on capital, so everyone wins. Who knew shit could be so interesting, we do.

    - Rita and Jeff Rayman

  • ZooShare has the potential

    of providing more base load electricity compared to solar and wind and it’s just a really cool way to further our green economy. I look forward to the day when I can tell my neighbours that their fridges now run on poop and rotten tomatoes!

    - Steve May

  • I invested in ZooShare

  • Our ZooShare interest

    stems from our desire to kick-start differentiated renewable energy initiatives in Ontario that address the reduction of waste streams in conjunction with generating cleaner electricity.
