We would like to thank you for your support with your investment in Good Energy Bond. With your investment we are delivering on our development strategy.
What your Bond achieved
Good Energy Bonds I have supported the development of 13 solar farms across the UK and over 150MW of renewable projects. In addition to supplying green electricity to UK households these solar farms have made a significant positive impact on the lives of local communities through community benefit funds, educational open days at our sites and wildlife and biodiversity programmes.
Following government policy changes over the last eighteen months, we are now stepping away from the development of energy generation assets as the market has moved in favour of large scale developers.
As the energy market continues to evolve at a rapid rate we are now focusing on growing our core supply business and developing sustainable energy solutions in areas such as storage, electric vehicle networks and green business consultancy to support consumer and business needs in this new environment.
Good Energy Bonds II was launched to support this new strategy and we were overwhelmed by the support and vote of confidence from our customers and investors.
Our new strategy will ensure we continue to power the choice for a greener and cleaner future together and deliver our long-term ambition to help realise a more sustainable energy market for the UK.
