Quick wins for Renewables: Wind Energy

Quick Wins Lighting Logo
Small wind turbines are ideal for householders, communities and small businesses to use for on-site energy generation. There are a range of different types of small wind turbine models and thanks to their flexibility small wind turbines can be installed in most locations. Your individual site specifics (such as location, wind speed and local landscape) will eventually determine the best turbine type and size for your case.
  • Wind turbines work best in exposed locations without turbulence caused by large buildings, trees or hills nearby
  • Your business should be in a windy area with average wind speeds not less than 5 metres/sec
  • Wind systems normally require permission from your local authority, so check before you install a system
