Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my site is windy enough for a Wind Turbine?

BWEA has a UK Wind Speed Database, which tells you the average wind speed in your area. The actual wind speed at your site will be influenced by the local geography and any nearby obstructions such as trees or other buildings. Wind movement around buildings themselves can be turbulent. A site with an average wind speed of 4-5 metres per second is generally sufficient enough to make installing a small Wind Turbine worthwhile.
