Dorset Community Energy 3rd Share Offer update

Dear DCE Members and Newsletter Subscribers

We are delighted to say the share offer is progressing very well and in just six weeks we have raised £248,850, or more than half our target of £445,000.

We have now issued the first £221,426 of shares on a first come first served basis. This is the sum required to implement 336kW of solar panels at the first six sites which already have signed Heads of Terms.  Share certificates will be sent to DCE Members by post in August.

We are liaising with the remaining sites to finalise terms, in the unlikely event that some decide not to go ahead, we are also working with a reserve list of interested sites. 

There is still time to invest, or to encourage your friends and family to do so.  The share offer is open until 31st July, after which the Directors will decide whether to keep the offer open or pause it.

We will send an update at the start of August once we have reached the end of the initial offer period.

Thanks to everybody who has invested to-date and helped get us off to this great start and welcome to the new members of DCE.
