Good Energy launches electricity tariff to reward local customers

Good Energy has announced the launch of the UK’s “first local tariff”, providing electricity discounts to customers that live near one of its wind farms.

The UK’s first 100% renewable electricity supplier will slash bills by 20% for anyone living inside a 2km radius of the substation at Delabole Wind Farm in Cornwall.

Individuals have until February 28 to sign up to the exclusive tariff, which compared to Good Energy’s standard rate, would save around £100 a year in energy bills. Customers will also receive up to £50 annually if the turbines outperform expectations.

Good Energy claims that the Delabole Local tariff is the first in what will eventually be a long line of similar community-centred rates, with plans in place to roll out other local tariffs in the future.

Juliet Davenport, Good Energy’s CEO and founder who was given an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List recently, said, “We’re rewriting the rules about renewable energy generation in the UK and this tariff puts community interest at the heart of what we do.

I would urge all those who live at Delabole and are eligible, to contact us to see how much they could save.

Local people can and should have a part in the income that a wind farm generates.”
