UK green supplier Good Energy has signed a one-year deal to buy electricity from one of DONG Energy’s wind farms.

It will purchase 12% of the output from the 210MW Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm in Yorkshire.

It generates enough electricity to power more than 26,000 homes.

Denmark’s DONG Energy said the deal marks the first time a British supplier will buy power directly from its offshore wind farm.

It added the agreement is likely to be extended for the longer term as part of the wider co-operation between the two companies.

The volume of power purchased by Good Energy is also expected to increase over time.

Juliet Davenport, Founder and Chief Executive of Good Energy said: “This agreement will help us meet ever-increasing demand for 100% renewable electricity as our customer base continues to grow.

“Offshore wind is a huge British success story and so we’re pleased to be playing our part by buying power from Westermost Rough.”

The oldest offshore wind farm in the world is being decommissioned after 25 years of service.
