A ROADSHOW staged by a group seeking to raise £1.95million to build Britain’s first community-owned anaerobic digestion plant comes to Henley on Monday.
Mapledurham Community Energy will be at Henley Business School from 6pm when the public can hear a free talk about the scheme and pick up a share offer document.
Director Christopher Crookall-Fallon said: “I would urge anyone interested in an ethical investment that also promises a reasonable rate of return to come along to hear how the project will work and how they can benefit.”
Staff from community energy specialists Mongoose Energy, who are overseeing the project, will be on hand to answer any questions.
The plant, which has secured planning permission, will be on the Mapledurham Estate on the Berkshire and Oxfordshire border.
It will take cow slurry and maize silage from the estate farm and turn it in to biogas which will then be burned making clean energy.
The project has already raised more than £150,000 to secure deposits on machinery that is to be manufactured specifically for the venture.
