Price Increase notification for December 2016

The Findhorn wind park (FWP) has advised NFD of a rise in their Green tariff electricity price that will come through for NFD usage from December 2016.
The will result in a 1% across day, standard and night rates.
Using the current November figures as an example, the standard rate would be 0.1347 pence (up 0.0014 pence), a day rate of 0.1447 pence (up 0.0014pence) and a night rate of 0.1087 pence (up 0.0014pence).

FWP statement on Park Electricity Price Rises:
The price charged by FWP to NFD is based on Scottish and Southern Energy's (SSE) domestic green tariffs and these have recently gone up, hence this increase.
When the wind does not blow strongly enough to generate all the power required for the Park, FWP imports the balance from the grid. With the recent growth of the Park estate (East Whins), FWP is now a net importer rather than exporter of electricity. Even so, about half the power used by the Park is purchased from SSE. The cost to FWP of this import electricity has now gone up in line with the national increases.
