Wind Turbines for Commercial Uses
Wind power for business: ride the winds of change!
Given the constant increases in energy prices in the past few years, it’s not surprising that these days owners and managers are looking to alternative forms of power – whether that means reducing, or totally replacing, their reliance on traditional electricity. Microgeneration has an important role to play in helping to offset energy used on Supermarket, retail parks, office and industrial parks. They both pay dividends to users through FIT’s and energy saved but also are a positive display of your efforts to reduce your carbon footprint.
The UK has some of the strongest winds in Europe – 40% of the continent’s winds blow over our islands – and yet wind power only accounts for 0.5% of our total energy production.
Benefits of wind turbines for business
For the right business in the right location, Coemi commercial wind turbines can help you harness the UK’s natural wind advantage, while also serving as a highly visible reminder to your staff and clients that you’re aware of your corporate social responsibility.
A sensible business solution
Some businesses will be better suited than others to buy a wind turbine. It’s likely that companies based in cities with a high density of buildings that block or deflect breezes might not benefit as much from urban wind turbines as much as those on higher ground or on the edge of town. Contact us to find out whether your site is suitable.
Generally speaking though, the future for wind turbines for business is good. It’s hoped that more and more local authorities will start to encourage the installation of renewable energy equipment such as wind power systems in new-build workplaces.
