Wind Turbine Overview
Wind turbines harness the power of the wind to generate electricity. Wind is a safe, clean and renewable method of energy generation.
A typical wind turbine system in a suitably exposed location could easily generate more power than your lights and electrical appliances use.
Successful wind installations are about “location location location!
When you generate your own electricity you do not buy from the grid, and at current prices, and the inevitable continuing increase of electricity prices, it can save you thousands.
Funding – The Feed in Tariff
The Feed in Tariff is a guaranteed 20 year index linked payment scheme for the energy you generate – whether you use it or not.
Wind turbine systems are currently eligible for the UK government’s Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) payments which mean you can earn money from the electricity you generate. You additionally benefit from free electricity during the day.
Our 4kw high quality Sharp solar PV systems cost circa £7,250 and will typically generate 3,600 units of electricity per annum. You will receive a guaranteed index liked income for 20 years of approximately £721 per year, plus savings on your electricity bill of approximately £175 – £275 per year on your electricity bill, plus over £69 per annum for the electricity that you do not use which you automatically export back to the grid. That means….£721 + £175 + £70 = £967 x 20 years x index linked…less the initial cost of your system = £36,015 net profit .Figures illustrated are based on MCS Standard Assessment Procedures which assume 3.5% inflation, 7% fuel inflation, and scaffolding. There is a package to suit every budget.
