Primary interest
Planning and Development
Invest in Reading Hydro’s share offer and help them build a community-owned hydro scheme on the Thames in Reading, next to Caversham weir.

Reading Hydro will generate renewable electricity and cut carbon emissions for decades to come. Income from selling electricity will run the scheme and pay a return to investors.

They need to raise £700,000 now, to build the scheme later in 2020. Many local people have already invested and the share offer is progressing well, but there’s still a way to go.

Will you help make it happen? By buying shares you’ll help tackle the climate emergency, while earning a reasonable return and knowing that surplus income will go to community projects. You’ll become a member of Reading Hydro Community Benefit Society, with a say in decisions.

Further information

Note that as with all investments, you’ll be putting your money at risk. Reading Hydro publish detailed plans explaining how they’ll make sure things will work and keep working on their Share Offer pages. You’ll need to read them and understand the risks before investing. If things go wrong, you could lose some or all of your money.
