ABOUT: Ecodynamic Community Benefit Society was set up to deliver a biodynamic, organic, low carbon, sustainable community to generate renewable energy. It launched a share offer to install a wind turbine at Croft West in Redruth in 2013. This first project was called Geoff Watson (after a wind energy pioneer), is a 60KW Endurance wind turbine. Long term aims of Ecodynamic include investing in the development and running of renewable energy generation projects, and to then re-invest surplus in biodynamic and sustainable farming.
PURPOSE OF INVESTMENT: The Resonance Community Share Underwriting Fund supported the share offer when it fell short of its target raise. The share offer needed more momentum to convince other investors to support this community project. Having assessed the potential of the project in terms of viability and social impact, as well as the strength of the team leading it, Resonance agreed to underwrite with a loan which added a little extra confidence to potential investors, to encourage them to invest. At the same time the Biodynamic Land Trust, which originated the project, also committed to underwrite the offer with a loan of the same amount and with this added momentum, the share offer finally managed to raise over £200,000.
