Would you like to invest in community energy? The government are ending the feed-in tariff, the old system of support for solar, and this year is our last chance to claim it. Community energy co-ops like MaidEnergy have until March 2020 to install solar and connect it to the grid. So we’re working with 10 community buildings in the Maidenhead and Windsor area to take the opportunity.
We are currently seeking £350,000 of investment to install solar on them all. The minimum investment is only £100 to enable as many people as possible to be part of it. We’re aiming to pay 5% interest for 20 years, as well as returning investors’ capital by the end of that time.
The closing date is 22 July, or when we reach £350,000, whichever is sooner.
Our vision is clean energy, locally owned. We’re a members’ co-op, we fight climate change by installing solar panels, we pay a decent return to investors, and we serve our community by cutting local community groups’ electricity bills.
2019 is a big year for the climate, and for us. If you’re interested in being part of it, go to our share offer site
