Good Energy, as an ethical mission-led company and a responsible developer, is committed to taking the following approach to developing new renewable energy sites through its Development Charter:
To engaging fully and openly with those communities closest to any proposed site and, where possible, considering alternative suggestions for the size, layout and presentation of that site.
To offer a discounted, local electricity tariff to those households closest to any onshore wind farm we develop that is over 4MW in capacity. The local tariff will be 20% cheaper than Good Energy’s standard tariff. If the site performs well, an additional discount may be offered to reflect that.
To ensuring that any site we develop acts as a vehicle for community investment, whether it be through independently administered community investment funds, direct investment from Good Energy or a combination of both.
To exploring opportunities to deliver community ownership of the sites we develop so that the greatest possible number of people are able to benefit from that development.
Around all of our projects we will look to develop exciting bio-diversity action plans to create, enhance an improve habitats, restoring ecosystems and allowing wildlife to thrive for years to come.
