Good Energy, the fast-growing, Chippenham-based renewable electricity supplier, has started producing and exporting electricity to the national grid from its first solar farm in Dorset.
The 5MW site is Good Energy’s first solar farm and will generate enough electricity for around 1,300 homes. Planning permission for the site was received at the end of last year and construction on the 34-acre, three-field site began in April.
Good Energy founder and CEO Juliet Davenport said: “The solar farm will make an important contribution to Dorset’s renewable energy targets and demonstrates the value of solar power as part of our renewable energy generation portfolio.”
The firm supplies more than 40,000 customers with energy from sustainable sources.
