BEC’s first share offer in 2012 raised £127,000 from 160 investors, with the money used to install solar PV on three community buildings. The communities benefit from subsidised green energy, while investors earned a 4% return on their investment in the first year of operation.

Now BEC is doing it all again, using the same model. The target this time is £200,000.
