We recommend a Wind Turbine for landowners in windy areas who are interested in investing to benefit from the Feed-in Tariff.
The government has created a scheme called the Feed-in Tariff, which determines how much money you are paid for the electricity you produce from wind and solar and is guaranteed for 20 years.

From 14 April 2014, customers of small wind turbines will receive 17.78p per kWh of electricity that they generate even if using the electricity themselves – in addition customers will also receive 4.77p for every kWh deemed as exported to the grid. The export is paid at 50% of your total generation.
Why invest in a Kingspan Turbine?
Turbines such as the Kingspan KW6 will deliver electricity savings and returns comparable to Solar PV, in many cases better, with payback periods under 7 years.
Wind Turbines earn income from a different Feed-in Tariff than Solar PV so the two technologies can be used together to double your returns.
How Wind Turbines work
Kingspan Wind Turbines are mounted on a mast up to 15m tall on your land. The turbine’s blades capture the energy from the wind and convert it into electricity for your property. Your property will then run off a mixture of electricity from your wind turbine and the electricity grid. When you generate more wind turbine electricity than you are using, the excess is automatically supplied back to the grid.
The good news is you are paid for generating electricity, irrespective of whether you use it or not.
Is my property suitable?
Wind Turbines are most suited to rural properties with a predictable prevailing wind.
You will need enough land to site your Wind Turbine at least 120metres from the nearest neighbour.
The obvious sites for the more predictable prevailing winds are coastal areas and much of Scotland, but smaller scale turbines that require less energy to perform are also viable inland when they are sited correctly.
