We’ll shortly have an offer document available for our forthcoming bond offer with Triodos Bank. We’d like to give you (as a visitor to our website!) advance notice of this exciting opportunity – to make a long term investment – and to support Coigach’s turbine.
Plans are underway to re-finance Coigach’s community wind turbine with the help of Triodos Bank. Triodos is one of the world’s leading sustainable banks and their mission is make money work for positive social, environment and cultural change. The re-financing (at lower rates than our present loan) means more money for the community!
Representatives of Triodos (based in Bristol) have visited Coigach and having seen the turbine in action (and studied the figures of course) will shortly be promoting our bonds to investors. With a track record of providing financial support and lending to pioneering community projects and other ventures that fit with their ethos, they already have a large base of potential supporters and investors.
Coigach’s bond offer will be launched by at the end of February (probably Monday 26th but tbc) and although it will be available to anyone glancing at their website, it will not be promoted to the big wide world for two weeks. This gives people in Coigach, the Coigach diaspora, and anyone reading this a fortnight’s head start!
Triodos will be filming in Coigach on Saturday 10th February – to showcase the people and places that make it special. If you’re out and about wear your best bobbly hat – and wave cheerily at the drone!
Full details of the bond offer will be in the document, which, if you are considering investing, you should read in full. In the meantime, we’ve added some Frequently Asked Questions …and the answers here: Bond FAQ
