As well as being good for both the country and the climate, your investment is great for the community. After paying our members interest and returning their capital, all profits from M&S Energy Society will be distributed via a dedicated Community Benefit Fund to help support local energy-related projects.
We expect to contribute significant sums of money to the Community Benefit Fund, with the amounts increasing each year. In our first five years our Community Benefit Fund has reached £7,700 and it is projected to increase materially from now onwards. We project the following sums:
|Community Benefit Fund||￡7,700||￡61,000||￡149,000||￡260,000|
And, because M&S Energy Society is owned by its members, you'll decide how the money will be awarded. Initiatives could range from insulation improvements for community buildings, to helping local residents cut their fuel consumption and save money.
