Our website contains a number of projects which are being offered as investment opportunities. However, we have to be very mindful of FSA regulations in the promotion of investments, whilst wanting to encourage the widest possible “community” involvement. We offer therefore, two different types of investment.
• Smaller scale investments which are geared towards a level of community ownershipin specific companies called industrial provident societies, which are carefully regulated to ensure a high level of community ownership. h2ope can offer investments in these projects via a prospectus which can be downloaded from the website. Currently, h2ope has undertaken four such share offers via a prospectus and are designed to attract people wishing to invest between £250 and £20,000.
• Larger investments focussed upon individuals (typically ‘High Net Worth Individuals’) who can declare themselves as ‘High Net Worth Individuals’ or ‘Sophisticated Individuals’ as defined by the Financial Services and Markets Act. H2ope has partnered with Resonance Ltd to help promote these investments. Neither h2ope nor Resonance Ltd are authorised to provide financial advice as defined by the United Kingdom Financial Services Authority, so these investments can only be made by people with the necessary competence and experience to assess the individual opportunities. People interested in larger investments will be directed to our contacts page and can make an enquiry. Upon receipt of the enquiry, they will be given the link to Resonance Ltd who will then undertake the necessary registration procedure for this kind of investor.
The projects listed below will indicate the scale of investment being offered.
Otterspool in Stockport will have an installed capacity of 68kW using two Archimedean screws, with a variable speed drive. Construction began on 3rd Oct 2011 and we anticipate that commissioning will take place in March 2012. We have worked with Stockport Hydro Ltd, the Industrial Provident Society which will own the scheme.
