Good Energy Group has announced the renewal of an agreement with Ørsted to source offshore wind power for its customers for a further three years. The agreement between Ørsted and Good Energy continues to secure 12% of the output of the 210MW Westermost Rough Wind Farm, located in the North Sea 8km off the Yorkshire coast and operated from Ørsted's base in Grimsby.
This represents enough renewable electricity to power more than 36,200 average homes. Under the agreement Good Energy can also increase the offtake in Years 2 & 3 to 17% and 28% respectively. Westermost Rough is owned by Ørsted, the Green Investment Group (GIG) and a consortium comprising GIG, Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5 (MEIF5) and the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS).
