Our ecobonds give people – our customers and the wider public – the chance to share in the financial benefits of the Green Energy Revolution. They also introduce a little fairness to the financial sector by ‘cutting out the middlemen’ – the banks who pay low deposit rates to savers and charge high interest rates to the businesses they lend to.
It’s a concept that’s as popular as it is radical. Three ecobonds have been issued so far, in 2010, in 2011 and more recently in 2015. Between them, these bonds raised approaching £40 million to help us build more sources of Green Energy in Britain.
There are currently no new ecobonds to apply for, but you can register your interest for any future bonds here. We'll then contact you if we follow up with ecobond four.
We'll be busy putting the ecobond three investments to work building new sources of Green Energy for a while, and we'll update on our progress soon.
In the meantime, you can find out below how we used the proceeds from ecobonds one and two to build more Green Energy in Britain.
