A major new deal between green energy supplier Good Energy and Danish wind farm giant Ørsted is set to secure enough offshore wind power for 36,000 British homes. Good Energy today announced it has inked its largest single clean power supply contract to date, giving it access to power from Ørsted’s 210MW Westermost Rough Wind Farm, located five miles off the Yorkshire coast, in a deal worth up to £50m. Under the new three year deal, which renews an agreement originally made in 2017, Good Energy will be able to increase the percentage offtake from the project from 12 per cent of all the power generated in year one to 17 per cent and 28 per cent in years two and three, respectively. Good Energy said its business customer volume has more than doubled in the past three years, and it wants to match that growth with domestic clean power supplies.
