Good Energy successfully concludes second corporate bond issue

Good Energy Group PLC ("Good Energy" or the "Company"), the AIM-listed renewable energy supply and generation company, is pleased to announce that, as at 5:00pm on 5th June 2017, it has received valid applications in excess of £10 million for its second corporate bond ("Good Energy Bonds II" or "Bonds II").

Good Energy has reached another important milestone in its 18-year history by exceeding its target of £10 million for Good Energy Bonds II, which received strong demand from new and existing investors and customers.
