Wiltshire-based green electricity supplier Good Energy is continuing its successful growth with an expansion into new offices.
Good Energy, which was founded in 1999 by CEO Juliet Davenport, will be employing more than 150 staff when it moves into new offices at its Monkton Reach headquarters in Chippenham at the end of March.
This will provide accommodation for an extra 40 employees.
Good Energy worked with commercial property specialist Carter Jonas in Bath to find new offices and partner Colin Scragg said he was delighted they had been able to help a business which was expanding and developing despite such tough economic times.
“Although the phrase ‘bucking the trend’ is an overused cliché these days, it seems to be appropriate as far as Good Energy is concerned,” he said.
“I believe it currently supplies over 30,000 homes and businesses with electricity and over 6,700 with natural gas and has been a catalyst for change in the energy market.”
Good Energy is helping lead the way for the UK to move away from reliance on fossil-fuelled power stations to a network of small, independent generators.
It also supports a pioneering community of more than 40,000 independent wind, small-scale hydro, wave, solar, and sustainable biomass generators. Good Energy has come top in the latest Which? customer satisfaction survey for energy suppliers in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
Earlier this month it was named Chippenham Business of the Year. The company has won a number of awards over the past few years including Juliet Davenport’s success in 2012, being named CEO of the Year and overall winner of the People and Environment Business Achievement Awards.
