Windfarm owner's statement

Statement from Juliet Davenport, CEO of 'Good Energy'.

“When we researched opinion in the local community, there was a very positive response from residents with 68% of those surveyed saying they would consider switching to a Good Energy Local Tariff once the benefits were explained to them.

This response is in line with the many inspiring community projects, such as Gigha in the Hebrides, which generates two thirds of its own electricity with three wind turbines which are owned by the community.”

Windfarm offers cheaper electricity

The owner of Delabole Windfarm in Cornwall has launched the UK’s first local tariff. Good Energy claims the special rate for residents could save customers around £100 a year.

People who live within two kms can apply for the tariff, which gives a 20% discount on standard electricity prices.
