How will this work for you?

You can download the mathematical calculation shown below, which is based on our current assumptions about the project's completion and operations. This calculation shows what a $5,000 investment might return to you. Some of these assumptions will prove to be inaccurate, possibly for the reasons described in this Risks of Investing document. Therefore the results of investing illustrated below are likely to differ in reality, for better or for worse, possibly by a large amount.

About the offering

The Company is engaged in two simultaneous offerings of its securities: An offering under §4(a)(6) of the Securities Act of 1933, which we refer to as the “Reg CF Offering” and an offering under 17 CFR §230.506(c), which we refer to as the “Reg D Offering”.

We are using the money from the two offerings for the same purposes and we are offering the same security in both offerings. When we refer to “the offering” on this page we mean the Reg CF Offering, unless indicated otherwise.

The minimum amount the Company is trying to raise in this offering – our “target amount” – is $2,500. If we have not raised at least the target amount by April 30, 2025 – our “offering deadline” – then we will terminate the offering and return all the money to investors. Investments made by our principals and affiliates will count toward reaching the target amount. If we do raise the target amount by the offering deadline, then we will take the money raised and begin to use it. We will also continue trying to raise money up to our $124,000 maximum.

If we reach our target amount before the offering deadline we might close the offering early, but only if we provide at least five days’ notice of the new offering deadline.

You can cancel your investment commitment made into the Reg CF offering until 11:59 pm EST on April 28th 2025 (48 hours before the offering deadline).

While we are trying to raise money in this offering, the Reg CF Offering, we will also be trying to raise money in the Reg D Offering. Because money is fungible, we don’t care whether the money comes from the Reg CF Offering or the Reg D Offering. Thus the Reg D Offering itself has no “minimum” amount. However, we will not close on the Reg D Offering until either:

  • The Reg CF Offering has reached the target amount of $2,500; or
  • The amount raised in the Reg D Offering by itself is equal to at least the target amount of $2,500.

We will stop raising when either:

  • We have raised at least the target amount of $2,500 in the Reg CF Offering and the total amount we have raised in the Reg CF offering plus the amount we have raised in the Reg D Offering equals our maximum of $2,400,000; or
  • We have not raised the target amount in the Reg CF Offering but have raised the maximum amount in the Reg D Offering.

You can review the offering documents as registered on the SEC website. Investments under Reg CF are offered by NSSC Funding Portal, LLC, a licensed funding portal.
