EDF Energy has signed a deal to buy power from a renewable firm’s portfolio of waste-to-energy plants.
Anaerobic digestion specialist Tamar Energy said it started selling power from its Basingstoke and Holbeach AD facilities to the Big Six supplier last month as part of the new power purchase agreement (PPA).
Another three facilities, which are expected to come online this year, will also provide low carbon energy to EDF.
The five plants, including those in Retford, Halstead and Hoddesdon, will have a total capacity of 11MW.
John Cockin, EDF Energy’s Director of Business Services said: “This PPA provides a flexible way to sell energy into the market so Tamar Energy can achieve the best price for their power and benefit from the minimum income certainty provided by the Feed in Tariff.”
