Renewable electricity supplier, Good Energy, is launching a local electricity tariff for consumers living near to the new Hampole wind farm and is hosting an event where eligible residents can sign up.

Good Energy has written 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. It could save an average Good Energy customer in the area over £100 a year on their bill.

The company is holding a special event on Saturday, May 17 between 12pm and 4pm at The Pickburn Arms in Pickburn to provide information and support for people interested in signing up.

Eligible residents can also sign up online at or over the phone on 0845 456 1640. The tariff is available until May 31.

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, which is enough electricity to power 4,000-5,000 average homes.

Good Energy is also offering other benefits in the area including a community fund worth £8,200 a year, for the lifetime of the wind farm, to support local charitable causes.
