Good Energy purchases solar power from Wales

Renewable power company Good Energy has announced an agreement to be the sole power purchaser for two new solar projects being developed by Flintshire County Council in Wales over an initial five-year period.

The agreement was offered at above-market rates to provide financial security to the Council, says the company.

The two sites, Flint Landfill and Crumps Yard, are being developed on land owned by the Council, close to the border between Wales and England. Both have been redeveloped to host around 9,000 solar panels, with the two projects having a combined generating capacity of 3.5 MW.

The solar sites achieved planning permission in 2020. The new financial agreement means they have now entered the construction phase, with both projects scheduled to be generating clean power this year.
