Library of key documents
This page is for Westmill Solar Co-operative's 1,500+ members, who all invested shares in the society. It provides up-to-date information from board meetings and also acts as a library of key documents.
The Westmill Solar Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on Saturday 19th May alongside the Westmill Wind AGM at The Steam Museum, Swindon.
The day was a great success and there was the chance to listen to enlightening and engaging presentations from Ethex, Energy4all, Community Energy England and 10:10 about the community energy sector and the vision of a society where everyone can have access to 100% renewable energy . It was also fanatastic to see so many of our members in attendance and participating in our Community Funding discussion.
We would like to re-emphasise how important the AGM day is to Westmill Solar in terms of our being a genuinely democratic organisation and so a huge thank you to all who voted online, and all those who attended on the day!
Governance & Share Offer Documents
The co-operative is governed in a very democratic way with each member having one vote, irrespective of the size of their shareholding. The majority of shareholders invested between £250 and £20,000 for A-shares under the public share offer. In order to comply with the law applicable at the time, those members who invested more than £20,000 were issued with a separate class of B-shares (which had slightly more limited rights than the A-shares) but following a change to the law in 2014, all the remaining B-shares were converted to A-shares in October 2015.
