Good Energy, the green energy supplier based in Chippenham, has released a special tariff for people living close to its windfarm in Cornwall. One resident said: “…Good Energy has calculated that the local tariff should save me around £125 on my electricity bill... Good Energy has taken this initiative to demonstrate that people can save money if their energy is generated locally. They believe that this initiative will help people to make the connection between their bills and their energy supply. This action by Good Energy supports our position as a community energy supplier that only by taking control of our own energy generation and consumption will we be able to reduce energy bills today and tomorrow.

Overload – Why ‘grid constraint’ could hobble the clean energy revolution, and how we can solve it without costly upgrades.
Over the coming decades we must transform the ways that we heat and power our lives. Switching to electric vehicles and electric heating will have a huge impact on reducing carbon emissions, but it will also put a tremendous strain on an aging electricity network which already struggles to handle peak loads. To keep the electrons flowing, we must think smart.
