Wester Derry update

Applications for shares in the Wester Derry wind turbine are arriving steadily, but if you hurry you could still get some of the pioneer shares with 50% tax relief. Advance assurance has been received from HMRC that the shares will be eligible for SEIS and EIS tax relief. Visit the website at for more information.

Llangattock passes the halfway mark

Brecon Beacons-based renewable energy group Llangattock Green Valleys has now sold more than half the shares in its second micro hydro co-operative. The group aims to raise £690,000 by the end of April to build four high-head schemes on the south-eastern side of the National Park.

Together these schemes should generate some 355MWh of renewable electricity a year – enough to power around 90 average Welsh homes.

The schemes will also generate income that will be used to support further sustainable projects and to pay subscribers a projected annual return of 5% (averaged over 20 years). The share offer has received advance assurance from HMRC, so qualifying subscribers should be able to claim Enterprise Investment Scheme tax relief at 30%, boosting the projected return to 7.7%pa.
