FAQs

When can I expect to receive my interest payment on my investment?

Our solar share portfolios (i.e. Solar 2014, Solar 2016, follow this pattern for the first payment of interest:  

Year 0 – the investment is made
Year 1 – first full financial year following investment ('grace year')
Year 2 – second full financial year following investment 


Then we expect to make the first interest payment following completion and auditing of the year 2 accounts.

Our Sandford hydro portfolio follows a similar timetable with a grace period between the time of investment and when interest starts to be earned on your investment.

Please see the pdf downloads illustrating the anticipated financial return for each share portfolio.  

(Please do note, however, that these are expected timings and depend on actual generation and income earned being as forecast for those years.)
