The Chippenham-based business has signed an agreement with the organisation to provide renewable energy to more than four million National Trust members, supporters and volunteers, which is to last for an initial period of three years.

Good Energy Group said this is a “significant market opportunity” for the business as it aims to increase its combined customer numbers from 80,000 to 125,000 by 2015.

The renewable energy business was chosen for the agreement as part of a selection process where it was up against representatives from the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers.

As well as giving up to £40 to the Trust for each customer who signs up to its tariffs, Good Energy is to provide “practical expertise” in assisting the organisation to develop renewable energy projects at its sites across the UK.

Juliet Davenport, chief executive and founder of Good Energy, said: “We believe that Good Energy shares many of the same values as the National Trust and its members. This partnership therefore provides us with an excellent opportunity to directly offer a significant number of potential target customers our market leading renewable electricity tariff and dual fuel offering.

“By providing practical expertise to the National Trust to help it meet its own objectives, we are also able to highlight the benefits of adopting renewable energy.

“We place a lot of emphasis on developing agreements of this nature in growing our customer base and we are delighted to have been selected and look forward to working closely with the National Trust and its members over the coming years.”

Earlier this year, Good Energy Group raised £4m through a placing when it moved from the Plus Market to AIM.
