Robin Hood Energy has won a “multi-million pound” contract to supply 100% green electricity to power the tram network in Nottingham.
NET operator Nottingham Trams’ supply will move from a ‘big six’ energy provider to Robin Hood Energy from 1 April.
Paul Robinson, managing director of Nottingham Trams Limited, said: “We conducted a strict Official Journal of the European Union tender process and Robin Hood Energy clearly demonstrated the most competitive price. It is good that we can link up with a local energy provider which has clear green credentials.”
Gail Scholes, chief executive for Robin Hood Energy said: “We’re delighted to win the contract to supply one of Nottingham’s iconic businesses. The tram network plays a pivotal role in getting Nottingham people to work, to school or hospital appointments, as well as helping to connect people socially and alleviate some of the problems of social exclusion in the region. So, we’re naturally delighted to play a part in this within our heartland of Nottingham.”
