UK Wind Turbine Feasibility in 2023

The UK government abolished the Feed-in-Tariff subsidy quite some time ago, and for quite a few years farm-size turbines (50kw to 1MW) were no longer feasible.

However, investing in a 225kW or larger wind turbine is once again feasible option for UK farmers, especially for sites with wind speeds in excess of 6.5 metres per second.

If the farm is located in an area with high wind speeds and consistent wind patterns, medium-size wind turbines can generate significant amounts of electricity, reduce energy costs and providing an excellent stream of additional income through the sale of surplus energy to the grid.

However, it’s important to consider the cost of installation and maintenance, as well as the impact of the wind turbine on the surrounding landscape and any potential noise pollution.

Choosing suitable locations for your wind turbines is now more important than ever.

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.
