Win £250 of shares in our wind turbine!

Grannell Community Energy are excited to announce that we will be giving people the opportunity to enter a special competition to win £250 worth of shares in our wind turbine. Anyone who buys shares becomes a member of the community who own the wind turbine, gets a lovely warm glow from actively working to stop climate change, and can expect a 5% return on their investment over the life of the project. Now, one special person is being given a chance to have their investment boosted by a gift from GCE of a further £250 of shares.

All you have to do is go to our share offer page, make sure you want to join, and then sign up to become a member (minimum £250 share purchase for people outside Ceredigion, £100 for those local to the project). Once you’ve joined, you will be sent a link to answer one question to be in with a chance of winning the further shares. But hurry, GCE are only going to enter existing members and new people who become members between now and 30th November 2018.

Existing members will be automatically sent an email giving them a chance to enter. They can give themselves a second chance of winning by buying further shares between now and 30th November 2018.

Why not give your friends and family a chance to win? If you buy shares for a child, parent, or friend, you also get another chance to enter, for yourself or for them. If they buy themselves shares, they can also enter themselves. So, spread the word, as we won’t be extending the dates on this competition!
