Residents living close to a Doncaster wind farm are set to benefit from cheaper electricity bills.

Renewable electricity supplier Good Energy is launching a local tariff for homes near to the new Hampole wind farm.

Good Energy is writing to eligible residents living near Hooton Pagnell, Brodsworth, Pickburn, Hampole, Moorhouse and Skelbrooke to offer them its Hampole Local tariff, which is at least 20 per cent cheaper than the company’s standard electricity prices. The tariff could save an average customer over £100 annually.

Good Energy’s new four-turbine wind farm at Hampole has a total capacity of 8.2MW and is

expected to generate around 20,000MWh a year, enough to power 4,000-5,000 average homes.

Juliet Davenport, chief executive of Good Energy, said: “Good Energy wants to see communities who live near our wind farms share in their success. We were the first to reward customers with a bespoke local tariff linked to wind farm performance. It is part of our ongoing commitment to our neighbours and is above and beyond what we are required to contribute.”
