INSTALLING A WIND TURBINE CAN BE A GREAT WAY FOR YOUR BUSINESS TO BECOME GREENER BY GENERATING ITS OWN ELECTRICITY AND SAVE MONEY ON ENERGY BILLS.
We will assess whether your site is suitable for harnessing wind power and, thanks to our partnership with UK-based wind turbine manufacturer, offer our clients great deals on their state-of-the-art 55kw Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT).
Designed by some of the best electrical, aeronautical and structural engineers in Britain, the VAWT boosts power output at low wind speeds, significantly reducing the total costs of ownership.
Unlike conventional Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines, it can take wind from any direction without suffering vibration and wear and tear issues, making it more reliable, efficient and cheaper to run.
As the majority of components are situated at ground level it can be easily and inexpensively serviced and maintained, without the need for cranes or cherry-pickers.
Noise is often cited as an issue with onshore wind turbines, but the VAWT is considerably quieter than most, generating just 40dB at 8 m/s wind speed – the equivalent of a library. Low noise levels mean it is suitable for use in populated areas, within residential or built up suburbs and close to schools, hospitals and universities.
At 37 metres, it is also smaller than conventional horizontal turbines, making it less visually intrusive and more bird and bat-friendly.
As well as generating your own electricity on site, a wind turbine can also help make money by selling any power you don’t use back to the grid for a profit.
(NB: An uprated 75kW model will be available in late 2016)
