The Eden Project is teaming up with its new power supplier, Good Energy, to help visitors understand how their energy use affects the environment.

Eden is now supplied by Good Energy, which gets all of its electricity from renewable sources, including Delabole Wind Farm, which was the UK’s first commercial wind farm.

David Harland, executive director at the Eden Project, said: “We’re very proud to say that all the electricity we use at Eden now comes from renewable sources. It’s great to be working with our friends at Good Energy, a company that is in tune with Eden and has an excellent record of working with renewable projects in Cornwall.

“We also hope to work closely with Good Energy on a variety of educational projects for our visitors, to help demystify the world of energy and help people make their homes more efficient.”

Good Energy founder and chief executive, Juliet Davenport OBE, added: “There are some real similarities with how we’re both trying to bring people closer to where their energy comes from, and how Eden is bringing people closer to where their food comes from. We both want to show that looking after nature is really important to our everyday lives.”
