Greencoat UK Wind close to powering 1 mln UK homes as size of portfolio surges

Greencoat UK Wind’s (LON:UKW) manager Stephen Lilley was happy with the first half performance even though wind speeds were slightly lower than expected.

The group bought four assets over the first half of the year worth £611mln, including its first deal for an asset without a ROC subsidy.

UK Wind’s portfolio generated enough electricity to power 940,000 homes, while the dividend rose to 3.47p.

The wind farm group is now the LSE’s 166th largest listed company and third-biggest onshore wind asset owner in Europe.

“The dividend is 1.7 times covered, has matched RPI for six years while at the same time we have preserved NAV.”
