Some energy co-ops are now starting to issue Bonds, two notable examples being Bristol Energy Co-op and Bath and West Community Energy.
Our policy has been to only advertise Bond issues from Societies, as these are exempt from the Financial Services and Markets Act 2012, and are able to be offered to the public without a full, and legally binding, Prospectus.
Bonds, like all forms of loan stock, have no voting rights, are for a fixed term, can have a fixed interest rate, but carry slightly less risk than shares.
Bond issues on this site are always indicated in bold italic type
