Taxation is a personal responsibility, and it's different from country to country. We have switchers from all over the world, so unfortunately this makes it hard for Switchr to keep track of how taxation is done in each country. As a general input you register your investment as a receivable, and earned interest as earned interest.
Switchr calculates CO2 avoided from your investment based on how much energy is produced by solar panels as opposed to coal production. We use coal as a comparison because it is the biggest and worst source of pollution of fossil power production within the European Union, and also because of the EU's goal to replace coal power production. If that energy is going to be produced in a sustainable way solar is going to be part of the solution, and by investing in Switchr solar parks you drive that change. The CO2 offset calculation of Switchr is reached by multiplying the kWh production with this factor that is the same for all countries in Europe: 0,955 kg CO2e/kWh. This figure is based on the International Renewable Energy Agency's (IRENA) calculations on Lifecycle greenhouse gasses emission values. Example: In a certain solar park one panel produces 350 kWh in one year. The calculation is: 350 kWh*0,955 CO2e=334 kg CO2e

Your investment is locked for a minimum of 12 months, and you can keep your money invested in a solar park for a maximum of 10 years. If you need to withdraw your investment earlier than 12 months, tell us, and we will do our best to help you out. After the 10 years, you will have an offer to continue on updated terms, withdraw or invest in a different park.
As with all investments, there are risks involved when investing in Switchr loans. The main risk of not getting your interest or your initial investment back, would be a bankruptcy of Switchr AS. Your investment is an unsecured loan to Switchr, which Switchr uses to invest in additional solar parks. The interest offered is linked to the income from the electricity production from the Switchr solar parks, and is based on the revenue the individual park you invest in gives. The interest is a fixed annual interest. Through the loan agreement you sign when investing, Switchr is obliged to pay interest rates to their lenders once a year («contractually obliged»)
A nice side effect of your environmental impact is that you also earn money on your investment. We plan to payout the interest you made in 2022 by the end of January. You will have two choices of what to do with the money: Use the interest to invest further Have the interest paid out If you choose the first option, a coupon with your interest for 2022 will be added to your Switchrboard. You can use this coupon when you invest in panels, and the sum of the interest will be deducted from the amount you would like to invest. Choice number 2 is the default choice. You will receive the money in your registered bank account. Please, verify your bank details.
