By purchasing shares, you become a member of our consumer co-operative that is registered with the Financial Conduct Authority. We uphold the co-operative principles, which means that each member gets one vote, regardless of the number of shares you own. This creates an equitable business where no one person or entity has more influence than another, based on their financial holdings.
Our members have a say in the governance of our energy savings co-operative. Shares are non-transferable, meaning that they cannot be sold to anyone else. Members can withdraw their investment (plus any interest due) at certain times during each year starting after the third year of your investment and in subsequent years. For more information about our Co-operative and our governance – download our rules here.
