The Advantages of Wind Turbines
The advantages of wind turbines are clear to anyone aware of today's rising energy costs. Unlike fossil fuels, wind power is a renewable energy resource that never runs out. This green electricity can not only cut company fuel bills, but also help reduce the harmful CO2 emissions that contribute to climate change.
It perhaps comes as no surprise to learn that for the last seven years, wind power has been the world's fastest-growing source of renewable energy.
Businesses, farms, public bodies and even homeowners are all tapping into the advantages of wind energy.
The Government is backing microgeneration 100% by providing grants, interest free loans and in April 2010 they quadrupled the support from 5p per kWh on the ROC’s (Renewable Obligation Certificate) scheme to 25.3p per kWh on the FIT (Feed in Tariff).
The BWEA and Energy Trust estimate that the growth of the microgeneration market could see installations rising from just over 1000pa to 10,000pa in a few years. They predict that generation values could be 1.7tWh per annum from 156,000 installations by 2020. There is no doubt that we are following the example of Germany, Holland and the USA who have seen a tenfold growth in the use of microgeneration.
SUT's MegaWatt Pedigree
SUT Wind Turbines MegaWatt partners CCWE installed over 930 of the 1.5MW SUT wind turbines models with a combined generation of 46.9 Million MWh.
Manufacture 2000 wind turbines annualy ranging from 1kW to 100kW with world wide sales to Asia, Europe and USA.
