Wind Power Installation
There are a number of important issues to consider ahead of installing a wind turbine. GenFIT offer a complete turnkey package making the wind power process simple.
On initial contact we will complete a simple desktop survey to determine the suitability of your site. The minimum criteria we look at are:
- Can the turbine be mounted min. 70m away from any ‘habitable’ windows?
- Do you own the premises/land which the wind turbine will be connected/feeding to?
- Is there a grid connection?
On completing the desktop survey we will issue you with a detailed appraisal of your site, the wind conditions, any concerns, estimate of annual performance and a cost for installation (subject to detailed site survey).
If the costs are right and you would like to progress further we will commence with the following tasks:
Planning – All small wind turbines require planning permission. We are very experienced in dealing with planning rules and will guide you through the planning process.
Grid connection – Your wind turbine will need to be connected to the grid. We will ensure connecting to the grid is feasible, and cost effective, plus we will gain all necessary permissions from the network operator ahead of your wind power installation.
GenFIT wind power systems are very robust, and simple to operate – just plug them in and watch them go! Our wind turbines do have moving parts, although these are designed to last 50 years – with occasional maintenance.
