("Good Energy" or the "Company")

49.9MW solar site sold for £6.8m, at top end of range

Further to the announcement made on 5 August 2014 relating to the sale of its 49.9MW solar site at West Raynham, near Fakenham, Norfolk, Good Energy Group PLC, the AIM quoted renewable electricity supplier and generator, confirms that the post-sale conditions have been met.

The total sale value will be £6.8 million and the net profit on sale received by the Company for the development of the site will now be at the top end of the range previously quoted at between £1.4 million and £3.8 million. This will be reflected in the year end results.

The sale of the solar site, to a member of the Trina Solar group, is part of Good Energy's strategy to develop its portfolio through a combination of selling some sites and building and holding others. The proceeds of the transaction will be used for the on-going development of further sites.
