PRESS RELEASE

Good Energy's Juliet Davenport crowned PLUS Market's CEO of the Year for the
second year running

Good Energy, the UK's only dedicated 100% renewable electricity supplier, is
pleased to announce that its Founder and Chief Executive, Juliet Davenport, was
awarded PLUS CEO of the year, for the second year running at the PLUS+Awards
2010, held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London on Wednesday.

Juliet Davenport said: "On behalf of Good Energy and the team I am delighted to
accept this award. Recognition from the PLUS market demonstrates that Good
Energy is a leader in our sector. We have worked hard to grow our customer base
and launch new initiatives over the last twelve months. As well as expanding
both our electricity and gas businesses, we have successfully secured finance
for the repowering of our Delabole wind farm and construction has now begun to
increase the wind farm's output by roughly two and a half times. Good Energy is
committed to increasing the uptake of renewable energy consumption in the UK
and we are proud to be working with over 26,000 households, and 1,300
independent generators. "

This is the second year running that Ms. Davenport has won this award which
recognises exceptional achievement on the PLUS-quoted market. 

Paul Haddock, Head of Capital Markets at PLUS Markets, said: "We are committed
to showing our support for PLUS-quoted companies, and our awards are our way of
celebrating their achievements over the past year.  Coming through the tough
market conditions, we have been impressed by the results of companies and the
work of their advisers.

"For the second year running, Juliet wins PLUS-quoted Chief Executive of the
Year. Juliet is an influential figure whose opinions are helping to shape
government policy and make their mark on the future of renewable energy in the
UK, through PLUS-quoted Good Energy.  My congratulations go out to the entire
Good Energy team for all their hard work and for the contribution they have
made to reducing carbon emissions in the UK."
