Join Brighton Energy Coop’s new solar project
Our new project is to install solar on 7 buildings in Brighton and beyond before summer 2014.
To do this we aim to raise more than £616,000 by selling shares in Brighton Energy Coop. Investors are projected to receive a 5% return on their investment, as well as a 30% tax break on the amount invested. See financial benefits here.
As of December 2013 we’ve raised more than £300,000 from community investors – 75% of this sum is to fund Phase 1 of the project – a large solar array of 214kWp on Shed 10 at Shoreham Port. This installation is now under way – see our Project Update above.
How it Works
We connect investors to solar projects in Brighton and on the South Coast. As the projects produce clean electricity they generate revenue by selling power to our solar landlords and to the national grid.
As we earn revenue, investors are paid back with interest.
