At Bristol Energy Cooperative we have been developing community-owned, green energy generation since 2011.
In that time, we’ve raised over £14million, installed over 9MWp of solar and battery assets, and facilitated over £300,000 of community benefit payments.
Now, in our latest share-offer, we’re seeking investment of £1 million to enable us to continue growing Bristol’s community-owned green energy supply. We welcome investments of £100-£100,000 and are offering a projected return of 3.5% per annum.
Our eighth share offer comes in the wake of a frustrating COP26 outcome. While politicians wrestle over words in statements, we’re seeking to offer people the opportunity to get involved with meaningful, measurable and community-focused schemes to move us towards a fully decarbonised grid.
The investment raised through this share offer will go toward funding some exciting new projects including a solar PV array on the newly developed Bristol Beacon, helping achieve its aim of being the UK’s first carbon neutral music venue by 2030, and toward a smart microgrid on a new Cohousing Project in Bridport, which will be the UK’s largest, comprising of 53 sustainable, affordable eco-homes.
