LCE wishes to raise all the money needed to install solar panels on all 4 buildings and other potential buildings by selling community shares. However, contingency plans are in place to raise any shortfall from a commercial lender and to pay off these loans as quickly as possible once revenue is being generated from the solar schemes. The projected cost of installing the solar schemes and its first year operational costs as well as future replacement of the inverters will be in the region of £_________.

LCE have set a threshold for the money to be raised from the sale of community shares of a minimum of one third of the full costs.
