How We Raise Money

We raise money through investment from the wider community. By joining together it’s possible to raise the large amounts of cash required to buy renewables (other energy co-ops have raised as much as £4.5m)

We do this via selling shares in our legal entity, Brighton Energy Community Benefit Society. A Community Benefit Society is radically different from a normal company – each member in the society has one vote, for example (regardless of the amount invested), the maximum investment is £20,000, and our shares do not change in value.

Each year we pay investors some interest as a reward for putting up their cash, as well as providing money for other low-carbon community projects.
