Good Energy passes solar sites back into community ownership 22.12.17

One of the UK’s 100 % renewable energy providers, Good Energy, today announces it will be handing two solar sites - Newton Downs Farm near Newton Farrers, Devon and Brynwhilach Farm, near Llangyfelach - back into community hands.

Juliet Davenport, CEO Good Energy, commented:

We’re thrilled to be able to pass the Newton Downs and Brynwhilach sites back to the community

Good Energy was set up as a response to climate change and to do things differently in the energy sector. Our vision is to create a cleaner, greener future together.

We will continue working with both sites having committed to an ongoing purchase of power from the site, as part of our community of local, renewable generators around the UK.”
