You probably heard – the UK government abolished the Feed-in-Tariff subsidy.
That sadly means the refurbished and remanufactured medium size (225kw and 500kw) wind turbines we previously provided aren’t feasible any more. To generate enough income to pay back in a sensible amount of time was dependent on both export and subsidy.
However, depending on your site and its average annual wind speed it could be feasible to install one or more larger 2MWh turbines, like the Vestas V80 for example.
Although on an ‘Export Only’ basis the income would be only approx. 6 pence per Kilowatt hour – a large 2MWh turbine could easily generate enough energy to compensate for the lack of FiT subsidy – providing your site has good wind speeds of course.
If you would like us to explore whether your site can accommodate one or more large turbines then feel free to get in touch and we can run a (free) Desktop Assessment to let you know what’s feasible, as well as provide income estimates.
