Good Energy renews offshore wind deal with Ørsted
Good Energy Group PLC, the 100% renewable electricity supplier and innovative energy services provider, today announces the renewal of an agreement with Ørsted to source offshore wind power for its customers for a further three years.
The agreement between Ørsted and Good Energy continues to secure 12% of the output of the 210MW Westermost Rough Wind Farm, located in the North Sea 8km off the Yorkshire coast and operated from Ørsted's base in Grimsby. This represents enough renewable electricity to power more than 36,200 average homes. Under the agreement Good Energy can also increase the offtake in Years 2 & 3 to 17% and 28% respectively. Westermost Rough is owned by Ørsted, the Green Investment Group (GIG) and a consortium comprising GIG, Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5 (MEIF5) and the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS).
The renewal of terms for a further three years, is the largest in Good Energy history and reflects the success of the ongoing relationship between Good Energy and Ørsted as part of a wider programme to explore opportunities for further cooperation over time.
Juliet Davenport, Founder and CEO of Good Energy said:
"Offshore wind is a huge British success story and we are proud to play a part in that. Building on our partnership with Ørsted allows us to continue to build on our ambition to transition to a 100% renewable energy system, empowering more customers to use clean power and ultimately tackle climate change."
