The Club Committee has agreed in principle to the fitting of Solar Panels, provided it only requires modest funding from the Club itself.
One idea is to offer a ‘Solar Bond’ to members. For those of you with Green ideals, or simply want to help your Club financially, the proposal is as follows:
1st July 2013 Buy Solar Bond from Club £1000
1st July 2014 Club repays you £200
1st July 2015 Club repays you £200
1st July 2016 Club repays you £200
1st July 2017 Club repays you £200
1st July 2018 Club repays you £200
1st July 2019 Club repays you £200
It would only need around a dozen members to provide the funds to supply and fit a 10MW system. The annual government subsidy would provide the income to make the repayments on the Bond so from year 7 the system would be fully paid up. It would then generate significant savings for the club’s utility costs.
For simplicity, the Club would acknowledge receipt of your funds with a copy of the Standing Order instruction to our Bank to make the 6 annual £200 repayments to you. Nothing would change if you happened to leave the Club for any reason, though no early repayment could be made.
