Next month we’re re-opening our Community Energy Fund to investors. It’s the investment opportunity that puts your money to work delivering local energy projects to tackle climate change, and pays you interest along the way in return for your support. You can find out more about the investment in our Community Energy Fund guidelines.

I chose to invest in the Low Carbon Hub because I’m really passionate about doing something to lower our carbon emissions… It’s great to be a part of it.

With your investment we can make a low carbon energy system that works for all of us, and for the planet, a reality. We’ll be adding more information to this webpage on this year’s Community Energy Fund in March (including our 2020 Share Offer Document), but in the meantime we’d love to know that we have your support.

So, why not show your love for the planet and make a pledge to invest in the Community Energy Fund? Simply click ‘pledge now’ and enter your pledge for the planet.

You can make an investment (and, therefore, a pledge) in our Community Energy Fund from a minimum of £250 – up to a maximum of £100,000.

Why invest in our Community Energy Fund?

It is a really special feeling when you go out of your house, cycle to work and and you see projects in Oxfordshire that you helped to make happen.

The benefits of investing in the Low Carbon Hub include:

  • Earn up to 5% interest on your investment*
  • Help fund more solar panels on schools and organisations across Oxfordshire
  • Keep money in the local economy through community ownership
  • Tackle the global issue of climate change on a local level
  • 100% of our surpluses support further local action on climate change.

* capped at 4% for the first four years of investment.

Hear from our existing investors, members of our community groups, a teacher and students from our solar schools on why they joined with the Low Carbon Hub.
