All members should have heard from Sharenergy that we’re running our 2020 AGM on Zoom. Do join in – no need to travel. (Sorry, we’ll all have to supply our own drinks and snacks this year – but we hope to see you all for our famous buffet next time!) But if you can’t take part, PLEASE DO SEND IN YOUR VOTES as we do want to know we have your support – thanks.
284,198 kWh of beautiful clean electricity generated during 2019!
This year’s AGM takes place on Tuesday 18 July. Join us for a site visit at 5,30pm, buffet+drinks at 6.30pm – with a talk on Herefordshire’s clean energy strategy and the AGM itself at 7.15pm.

This year’s AGM will take place in the early evening of TUESDAY 18 JULY 2017, at the same venue as last year, the Lady Emily Hall, Tarrington – further information to follow in due course but please make a note in your diaries. We would love to see as many Pomona members and other interested local people as possible.
Pomona Solar Co-op has 300 kilowatts of solar PV panels up and running in Herefordshire! Find out more on 5 July 2016.
The Directors would like to invite both members and non-members to come along on the evening of our 2016 AGM to take a look at the site (5.30pm), join us in Tarrington for drinks and a light buffet (6.30pm), and attend the AGM (7.15pm). You are welcome to take part in the whole evening, or just to pop along for a look or a drink and chat. Local residents are especially welcome.
While it’s not essential to register for the AGM, if you wish to join us for the site visit or drinks/buffet it would help us enormously if you could please register in advance here – where you’ll also find a map and all the other details of the event.
We are pleased to announce that the installation of solar panels, including the additional 50kW added as a extension, are now all installed, commissioned and generating electricity. We would like to thank all our members who have bought shares that has enabled this project to happen. On the website you can see some aerial photographs of the panels in place.
We have just reached our £70,000 target for the phase 2 share offer, thanks to everyone who has applied for shares.
If you didn’t apply in time, there are several other community energy schemes that are trying to reach their targets before the 30th Nov when tax relief is withdrawn – have a look on www.sharenergy.coop/live/ for list of open share offers.
Impending changes to EIS legislation has imposed an important deadline to our extension share offer. The government has just announced that EIS legislation will be changed so that community energy schemes will be excluded from this tax relief and this will be enacted from 30th November. If you want shares in Pomona and want to claim the tax relief you need to get an application in before this date. We have to process the application and clear cheques before issuing shares so APPLICATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY US NO LATER THAN 20TH NOVEMBER FOR APPLICATIONS ACCOMPANIED BY CHEQUES, OR 26TH NOVEMBER FOR EMAILED APPLICATIONS PAID BY BANK TRANSFER. The share offer will be continued after this date but shares would not be eligible for tax relief.
This new legislation means that no community energy share offers after this date will be eligible for tax relief so THIS IS THE LAST CHANCE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EIS TAX RELIEF WITH COMMUNITY ENERGY SHARES.
