Why are you allowing Barnsley residents to invest for less than others? Who qualifies?

  • We want to give local people the opportunity to take ownership of the energy infrastructure in their town, and benefit from the returns.
  • By offering a lower minimum investment, we hope this will enable more residents to participate in the scheme.
  • We decided upon the value of £100 because any lower and the cost to administer the payments to the individual would outweigh the benefit to the society.
  • Those residents with postcodes S70 through to S75 will be able to invest for less than others.
