Wind is the country's most abundant renewable energy resource. For the UK, harnessing that resource is essential if we are to have a secure, clean and balanced energy supply. On a local scale wind energy is also valuable, whether you're a farmer looking to generate additional revenue from your land, a business keen to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability, or a community that wants the security of generating its own clean electricity.
Making a success of wind energy is not straightforward, however. Sites need to be selected carefully based on wind resource, access and a range of planning constraints. Each site requires the completion of a costly and time-consuming development process before it can be developed. In addition to this, wind turbines are expensive, so considerable upfront investment is required.
Fine Energy enable anyone with a suitable site to benefit from a wind turbine. Our endeavour is to make the whole process far simpler. We offer a leasing arrangement, paying you for the installation of a small, quiet wind turbine on your land. We work in partnership with manufacturers who have chosen us to select and develop the best sites for their turbines in the UK. After establishing whether your site is suitable, we invest in designing and developing it, using our experience and expertise and working closely with the relevant planning authority and with the local electricity distribution network operator (DNO).
The arrangement is highly competitive because each turbine is made, installed and maintained by its manufacturer, meaning it never changes hands and so no sales organisation is involved. Anyone with suitable land can benefit; you get a substantial, long-term income without the need to invest any of your own time or money. Why pay for a wind turbine when the manufacturer could be paying you?
Endurance Wind Power
Endurance Wind Power Ltd is an established manufacturer of advanced wind turbines, whose strategy is to become a distributed energy generator by owning and operating their own turbines in the UK. They chose Fine Energy to become their sole UK land rental partner in November 2011 and we now have sites across the UK from Cornwall to the highlands of Scotland. Endurance's E-3120 55kW model is engineered to be a safe, quiet and dependable machine ideally suited to most landscapes in the UK. The newer X29 225kW machine, to be manufactured in the West Midlands starting this summer, is particularly suitable for very windy sites.
