Opening an account is easy!

Primary Savings is the initial account used to start your membership with Solarity. It's also a great place to begin saving for special events, vacation or as a source of emergency funds. As your nest egg grows, you can get even more focused by opening additional accounts for specific goals like a bucket-list trip or a new car. 

Our Youth Savings accounts are designed with younger members in mind. Those 17 and under can start learning good savings habits as they gain positive reinforcement from watching their account balances grow over time.

You can apply online in just a few minutes:
