Invest In Our Pellet Plant

Dorset Renewable Co-Operative Limited Have Launched The Investment Stage For A Pellet Plant.

The first project we are working on is to develop a wood pellet plant at Ling Siding. Wood pellets are a premium renewable fuel made by compressing waste sawdust to form biomass pellets. Pellets can be used as fuel whenever heat is required, they also make an excellent pet litter or bed litter for stables. The predictability of wood pellets made to tight specifications means they can be used very conveniently in automated, efficient, and clean-burning equipment.

Benefits of membership

Your membership will help develop a renewable energy resource that currently goes to waste; it will strengthen existing businesses and create new jobs while providing a clean and convenient renewable fuel for the community’s heating needs. Your investment in the co-operative will make you the part-owner of a community-owned renewable energy project – the pellet plant.

  • By becoming a member of DRCL:

    • You will become part of a new way for a community to have more control over its own destiny. During the 2011 – 2012 downturn in the North-East, all of the industrial employers shut down, and the local community had no control over that. Local ownership of employers is essential for local resilience.

    • Your investment will help develop a renewable energy resource that currently goes to waste; it will strengthen existing businesses and create new jobs while providing a clean and convenient renewable fuel for the community’s heating needs.

    • Your investment in the co-operative will make you the part-owner of a community-owned renewable energy project – the pellet plant.

    • Your investment in the co-operative will give you a say in the running of the business; a say that is equal to all other members, regardless of the size of their investments. Co-operatives work on a “one vote per member” basis: your influence does not depend on the size of your bank balance.

    • When the pellet plant is profitable the co-operative will be in a position to pay dividends to its members in proportion to each member’s investment in the co-operative.
