£2.5 million bond issue to raise funds for investment in UK hydro power

£2.5 million bond issue to raise funds for investment in UK hydro power

The TLS Hydro Power bond issue has now closed fully subscribed.

TLS Hydro Power, one of the UK’s leading independent developers of small- scale hydro power schemes is working with Triodos Bank to raise £2.5 million for investment in new renewable energy projects.

It aims to use the money raised to help meet growing demand from LoCO2 energy – also part of the TLS Energy Group – which supplies around 8,500 customers with energy, 80% of which comes from renewable sources.

TLS Energy Group Chief Executive Officer Bob Middleton said; “Our ambition is to supply one third of LoCO2 energy’s need through our own renewable energy production. To achieve this we need to develop, own and operate more renewable energy generation assets. Money raised through the bond issue will put us in a strong position to respond quickly to opportunities as they arise in an increasingly competitive market.” TLS Hydro Power specialises in both the development and construction of new hydro power schemes and the renovation of older, defunct sites. It has developed eight sites across the UK, including redeveloping three old hydro power sites which had fallen into disrepair. The redevelopment of existing sites is part of TLS Hydro Power’s strategy to minimise environmental impact as it grows its renewable energy generating capacity.

The bond issue, which runs from  16 March 2015 to 29 May 2015, offers a 7% annual return*, with a minimum investment of £1,000. LoC02 energy customers and employees of the TLS Energy Group will receive additional interest of 0.25% per year, payable at maturity, and a lower minimum investment of £500.
