Farmgen secures power purchase contract
And the company has now secured a power purchase agreement with supermarket chain Marks and Spencer (M&S).
In a bid to consume only green energy by 2012 M&S has signed a five-year deal with Farmgen for an undisclosed amount. It will begin purchasing the power when the biogas plant commences operations.
Farmgen has also announced that it is to receive a £2.1 million (€2.48 million) loan from the Co-operative Bank, which will go towards funding the build at Carr Farm.
