The last public share and bond offer was to raise £2.63 million for investment into the Crewkerne solar array. These offers closed fully funded, earlier than the anticipated closing date. The relevant share and bond certificates have been posted to all our investors.

The money raised will go towards allowing us to take into community ownership a solar array sited a few miles from Crewkerne in Somerset. The array will be capable of generating 5MW of clean energy. The total projected cost of purchasing the Crewkerne solar array will be £5.96 million. The bond and share offer combined will be for £2.63 million with the balance coming from a loan from a commercial lender for £3.33 million.

And here are  9 good reasons to invest in next offer

How your interest is calculated for the  Crewkerne Bond offer

Interest is calculated from the date your bond is issued. There will be 2 issue dates, one for applications received before 7 June, the other at the end of the offer on 12 July. The bond is a 2 year investment with the 5.0/5.5 % interest a year with interest paid annually for 2 years and the capital, or amount invested, repaid at the end of the second year. If you decide to redeem your bond after 2 years you will be repaid your capital and interest earned during the period. You may also have the option to renew your bond for a further period.
