The community energy investment offers linked from this page may differ in a number of ways including: technology, development status, social purpose and impact, company and investment structure, governance and management arrangements, intended investor return, tax considerations and regulatory risk. As with any kind of investment, there are risks associated with putting your money into a community energy enterprise. You should consider all the information provided by each community energy enterprise carefully and not assume that one offer or enterprise is similar to another. Offer documents should be read carefully and in full.

Most community energy investment offers are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Some are not treated as a controlled investment for the purposes of section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 pursuant to paragraph 14 of Schedule 1 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 and offer documents may be exempt from the requirements of an approved prospectus set out in section 85(1) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

If you are in any doubt as to whether a community energy investment offer is suitable for you, you should seek your own advice from an independent financial adviser duly authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, who specialises in advising on investment in shares and other securities.
