Centrica to gradually exit wind power

05/02/2016 00:57 Renewable


Centrica, largest household energy supplier in Great Britain, and its joint venture partner EIG Global Energy Partners have decided to sell three UK wind farms for a total of 423 million pounds ($616 million) to a consortium including the UK Green Investment Bank Offshore Wind Fund and other funds managed by BlackRock.

The transaction is in line with Centrica’s strategy to dispose of its interests in wind power generation, while continuing to purchase 100% of power and 50 % of the renewable obligation certificates (ROCs) from the three wind farms under existing power purchase agreements until 2024. It will also provide operations and maintenance assistance up to March 2017. After paying off debt, Centrica will get around £115m in net proceeds from the deal. The power plants are the Glens of Foudland onshore 26-MW wind farm located in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and the 194- megawatt Lynn and Inner Dowsing offshore wind farms are located off the coast of north-east Lincolnshire, England.
