Opportunity to invest in Meadow Blue Community Energy
The share offer aims to raise £640,000, which will be invested in a 5MW solar array at Merston Farm in Chichester, is eligible for Enterprise Investment Tax (EIS) tax relief and aims to pay investors 7% interest/annum. The directors of Meadow Blue Community Energy include Chris Rowland (a director of OVESCO Ltd CIC) and Nick Rouse (a director of OVESCO Ltd CIC & OVESCO Limited CBS) as well as Julie Salmon, Dave Barton and Steve Webb.
IMPORTANT: due to recent changes to the Enterprise Investment Tax (EIS) tax relief announced on the 26th October, investors cheques must clear by the 23rd November and BACS payments by 24th November. For more information about how and when to invest go to the Ethex website
This is almost certainly the last chance to benefit from a share offer in a community energy project using EIS.

What is Transition?
|When with TTL, Rob Hopkins asked people "What is Transition?". Here's what they told him...|
Transition Town Lewes (TTL) is a network of Lewes people. We’re working on local solutions in response to the global problems of climate change, economic change and the end of cheap energy and other resources.
Please get in touch if you would like to meet some of the people involved in project work for TTL.
And don't forget to subscribe to the TTL monthly newsletter to keep up to date with our news and events.
Transition is about the creation of resilient communities. It's not about campaigning but designing. It's about putting in place systems that will help us to deal with the big changes that are on the way. Those changes will be in three main areas: energy, the economy and the environment. Read more and get linked in to the bigger picture!
