The maximum share investment in an IPS has increased from £20k to £100k. The Industrial and Provident Societies (Increase in Shareholding Limit) Order 2014 sets out the details.
Fantastic turn-out upstairs at the Kingsbridge Inn at our Share Issue brainstorm session. We got all the things we wished for – questions, feedback, ideas, enthusiasm and commitment. Ideas ranged from bike-based promotion to on-site, interpretive signage, plus signed-up commitment to host a social gathering and leaflet neighbourhoods. Without our members’ help at this stage, projects that are ready to go simply might not happen. There’s no doubt, even amongst those who wondered about the wind turbines, that investing in Community Energy makes environmental, social and financial sense.
