Wind energy delivers for West Yorkshire couple

Barry & Cynthia Goodwin recently commissioned Yorkshire based renewable specialists Investment Renewables to take them through the process of installing a wind turbine at their property in Midgely, West Yorkshire.

Due to the limited land available and proximity to neighbours, it was key to choose a turbine that would generate energy reliably, whilst producing low operational noise levels.

After a comprehensive assessment of the site, we advised the Goodwin’s to look at the Evance R9000 5kW. With over 1,500 operational turbines across the UK, the Evance is a tried and tested model and offered all the attributes their site required.

Barry said “ making the decision to invest in a wind turbine was one that took us a great deal of consideration and choosing the right company to work with was just as important. We chose Ross and the team as they had installed several turbines in the area and could offer the complete package, from their cost effective planning service through to a professionally managed installation ”

With an expected output of around 13,000 kWh per year and a return on their investment within 6 years, the Goodwin’s stand to earn a tax free income in excess of £100,000 over the twenty year lifetime of the Feed In tariff!

After just a few months of operation under their belts the Goodwin’s alongside Investment Renewables are now preparing to move forward into planning for a second turbine, hoping to have it installed this summer.

Barry also said, “ We were extremely happy with the service we received from the team at Investment Renewbles and the clear guidance provided from the word go! We can honestly say we are delighted with our turbine and we would happily recommend Investment Renewables to anyone looking to embark on their own renewable project! ”
