UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS
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 20th May alongside the Westmill Wind AGM at Cornerstone Arts Centre, Didcot.
We had the chance to hear from Enercoop about their vision of a society where everyone can have access to 100% renewable energy, as well as from organisations active in ethical food, insurance, energy supply and the local credit union, including our partner organisations Ethex and WeSET. Lots of delicious food was provided by a local caterer, and for the first time, the AGM was live-streamed for the benefit of members unable to attend. If you couldn’t make the AGM, you can still watch it on our YouTube channel.
We would like to re-emphasise how important the AGM day is to Westmill Solar in terms of our being a genuinely democratic organisation. 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.
