Wind - Farm Scale

The use of wind-generated power is nothing new. For hundreds of years, farmers have harnessed the wind’s energy to help them run their businesses.

The current challenging economic and environmental climates places ever-increasing demands on farmers and rural business owners to operate their businesses in a sustainable way and deliver competitively priced produce to the marketplace. So it’s vital that energy costs are minimised in an environmentally friendly way.

An appropriately sized wind turbine on, critically, the right site maximises use of this free, natural resource and once installed provides a long-term source of renewable energy. 3R Energy helps clients install the right turbine in the right place.

Feed in Tariffs

In April 2010 the Government introduced a system of feed-in tariffs to incentivise small scale, low carbon electricity generation. Home and business owners can receive support for electricity they produce from eligible renewable and low-carbon sources. The scheme provides a fixed payment for the electricity you generate and it also pays for any unused electricity that you export to the grid. A further benefit is that you won’t have to pay for electricity that you generate and use yourself.

The world's first-known structure by which electricity was generated from wind power was designed and built in Scotland by Professor James Blyth, a Scottish engineer based at Anderson's College in Glaosgw (now University of Strathclyde).
