adv11 - according to the prospectus, certificates should have been sent out on 5 April. Who did you post your cheque to? If to Halifax then they are responsible and you should initiate their complaints procedure. Otherwise, whoever cashed your cheque is responsible. In the event that Capita posted a certificate to you, which has got lost, you can obtain a new one, for a fee. Capita can be very obtuse, but you can demand to know whether they posted a cheque to you. EDIT: do it by formal letter; on the phone they'll stall.

Has everyone now received their shares, whether in certified or in their accounts ? Although my cheque was cashed a month ago, I have heard absolutely nothing. The shares should have been placed into my Halifax Share dealing account. Halifax tell me they aren't interested - I can only deal through them by buying through them or transfering a certificate in. Capita apparently have fulfilled all their obligations and won't talk to me. The only help I have had is from Greencoat, but still nothing. Looks like a case for the Mail on Sunday since they brought UK Wind to my attention.

Useful, thanks. Confirms my own feelings on UKW.

I suspect it was a link to a competitor and automatically deleted. Stake by Investec yesterday was another encouragement: high institutional stakes in this sort of thing will deter governments from tinkering (raiding?) with subsidies, hence more stability. All three political parties are committed to the Green Agenda. Yes, I know it's all very artificial and manipulated, but it's important enough for the government not to renege, or they'll lose the private sector involvement they need so badly.

Yes, Honiton I remember, R Ball not - but isn't 'Honiton' still around? Large caps yes - and Unilever has been a useful holding for the past year and more. Persimmon, too in housebuilding. I'm not sure about 20% capital return unless you take big risk. I'm in the school which says something will go "pop" or even "POP" - though not yet.

ps I reckon you can easily best index by dumping the obvious duffers. expect 20% capital return this year. large caps offer good value.

jonwig greetings. my user name was HOniton then. I think we followed each other across to chesnara. a well run company but I could never quite figure out the business model: actuarial figures being a bit beyond me. note comment re: hmgov.

R Ball - hello to you, too. Yes, looking back I sold INP sometime in Nov 07 (my records are somewhere). That was a decent investment ... and trading around it was fun! I think I stopped looking at shares from a "trader" viewpoint around then. Nowadays I've no aspirations to beat any index, except cash in the bank and to preserve capital in real terms. As for UKW, I just hope they can give me 6% plus ?PI and by implication the real value of my stake. Worth remembering that HMGov and SSE hold a big chunk of these, and would likely block acquisition from outside.

Hello jonwig Thought I would catch up - remember Inspicio. Oh happy days before the banking crash. This one looks interesting, and a reasonable asset play. The regulatory environment is benign and yield may become quite hefty. What do you reckon to a take-out in 3 years time but a, say, nuclear power generator.

FT, largely positive on stable cashflows: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/7af73c2e-930b-11e2-b3be-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2OoVXDPuk Telegraph, maybe the strongest argument for investing is as a hedge against your rising fuel bills: This prospectus explains the massive rush of wind applications, as developers know they will get rich whilst pushing thousands of energy consumers into fuel poverty. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/energy/windpower/9934846/Green-tax-boost-for-wind-farm-profits.html And: http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/54244/greencoat-uk-wind-ipo-heralds-change-for-listed-cleantech-54244.html

I'm quite surprised at the lack of background comment on this issue.........all very subdued. I'm wondering if the Government are fearful of a backlash over the amount of subsidy that they are providing for the sector. My subscription application was scaled back so I was expecting more of a premium. Only have a modest position but I'll be sitting with it to see how things develop from here.

The success of the float suggests that the market is not too worried about turbine life and neither am I. Hope you are not being a bit naughty Jonwig and trying to put a lid on the price till Apr 6th.... Te He !

I bought a few of these as looks a good long term proposition. Also bought some WIND at the same time.

Looking at the Risk Factors detailed in the prospectus, one in particular is a concern: wind turbines may have shorter life-spans than their expected life-span of 25 years. In the event that the wind turbines do not operate for the period of time assumed by the Company in its business model or require additional maintenance expenditure to do so, it could have a material adverse effect on the business, financial position, results of operations and business prospects of the Group [p 16] Last December, a study cast doubt on the 25 years figure: The analysis of almost 3,000 onshore wind turbines - the biggest study of its kind -warns that they will continue to generate electricity effectively for just 12 to 15 years. The wind energy industry and the Government base all their calculations on turbines enjoying a lifespan of 20 to 25 years. The study estimates that routine wear and tear will more than double the cost of electricity being produced by wind farms in the next decade. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/energy/windpower/9770837/Wind-farm-turbines-wear-sooner-than-expected-says-study.html The industry is disputing the findings, but it would, wouldn't it? NAV on admission is about 98p. I'm inclined to wait for a decent discount to that.

Just check my account at H-L. Applied for 8,000 shares got 7020 which means I was scaled back by 12.25%
