What are the risks?

As with any investment there is a chance that you could lose your capital, or its value could go down. Of course, we will all be working hard to prevent this possibility, and we believe that the proven track record of solar technology means that your money is pretty safe. You should also be aware, though, that as a Community Benefit Society we are not able to pay interest  on your investment until we begin to generate a net income.

Solar Photovoltaic has proven to be a reliable technology, and the Feed in Tariff rates offer a viable financial model. However, there is also a very small risk of damage to panels which could add to costs and reduce income. In most cases, though, such damage would be covered by our insurance, so would not be problematic.
