Renewable Energy Generation Limited  (AIM: WIND), the renewable energy group, today announces the sale of its 4.5MW ground-mounted solar project at Goonhilly Downs in Cornwall to a fund managed by BlackRock for an upfront consideration of £5.0m and contingent deferred consideration of up to £0.7m.


The scheme, located adjacent to the long-standing REG-operated wind farm, was constructed by juwi Renewable Energies Ltd and has been successfully accredited under the Feed-in Tariff regime.
