Community energy: who benefits?

We’ve reached the end of another financial year and will now start thinking about the apportionment of income between different stakeholders.

The principles behind the allocation was set out in our Invitation to Invest , and it still stands that any surplus after running costs will be used in 3 ways, in order of priority:

  • savings, retained by SHL to either replace the turbine or repay investors’ capital after 15 to 20 years
  • interest payments paid to the investors (between 5 – 8%)
  • further initiatives to support sustainable living within the parish of Hockerton
