Positive impact

Your money can make a positive impact right on your doorstep

Take action on the climate emergency in your area by investing in the UK’s first Community Municipal Investment.

This new investment will put your money to work to fund new solar power in West Berkshire. You will get a long term, low risk return, and also help West Berkshire Council work towards its target of becoming carbon neutral by 2030. And you will be making sure that some of the first pounds invested as we recover from the coronavirus outbreak are green ones.

This new investment will be launching as soon as the solar panel installers are able to start work following the end of the lockdown restrictions. To keep up to date sign up for email updates below.
