Good Energy has won a competitive tender to supply the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority with 100% renewable power.
The Wiltshire-based company is partnering with the National Park Authority to ensure all its properties will be supplied with clean electricity. This includes the National Park Visitor Centre, Craig y nos Country Park, and the Park’s headquarters in Brecon.
The contract was won based on the lowest cost green tariff; in total, Good Energy will provide over 147,000 kilowatt hours of clean electricity each year. This is an estimated saving of 51,000 kilogrammes of carbon dioxide, equivalent to a new car driving from London to Beijing 40 times.
The new contract forms part of the National Park’s strategy to reduce energy costs, cut carbon emissions and lead by example. New electric vehicle charging infrastructure is currently being installed at the Authority’s two main sites to support the transition to clean transport. Good Energy will also be supplying clean power at these new charging points as well, reassuring car owners that their vehicle is powered by a sustainable source.
Juliet Davenport, Founder and CEO at Good Energy, said:
“We’re delighted to be working with Brecon Beacons National Park Authority on this new project, which will foster the area’s long-term sustainability.
“It’s natural for the Park to be supplied by clean power in its role as protector, and educator, of the Beacons’ environmental importance. Good Energy looks forward to supporting this vital work in the years to come”.
Julian Atkins, CEO at Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, added:
“At the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority we are focused on conservation and sustainability. We recognise the major impacts of climate change and want to lead by example in relation to the use of renewable energy. We are pleased and proud to be partnering with Good Energy to supply the Authority with renewable power.”
