UK green energy supplier Good Energy Group Plc (LON:GOOD) said on Friday it has agreed to source offshore wind power from Denmark’s Ørsted A/S (CPH:ORSTED) for a further two years.
Specifically, Good Energy has renewed an existing agreement to buy 12% of the electricity generated by the 210-MW Westermost Rough wind farm off the Yorkshire coast in the North Sea. The company says that this is enough power to supply over 26,000 average homes.
Ørsted owns the Westermost Rough offshore wind park alongside the Green Investment Group (GIG) and a consortium comprising GIG, Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5 (MEIF5) and the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). The 35-turbine farm has been operational since June 2015.
Juliet Davenport, founder and CEO of Good Energy, commented that the plant has performed ahead of expectations over the past 12 months in terms of output.
Apart from offshore wind, Good Energy also counts on onshore wind, solar and biomass.
