Reduce your Carbon Footprint
Wind is a free resource. Wind Power is a source of renewable energy that does not release harmful greenhouse gases or other pollutants into our fragile atmosphere.
This, combined with wind turbines ability to produce electricity on a large scale, is the reason the UK and many other Governments are commissioning wind farm construction on and offshore. Our Government has a target to produce 15% of the UK’s electricity consumption from renewable energy by 2020.
Advantages of wind power
- The electricity generation process does not emit CO2 or pollutants. Wind is also an infinite resource that will never be exhausted and does not require any expensive and dangerous drilling or mining.
- Wind turbines can cut reliance on traditional fossil fuel resources by using the power of the wind to create electricity.
- If you install a wind turbine you can earn money for every kW of electricity you produce, through feed-in tariffs, whether you use it or export it to the national grid.
- Wind turbines rely on simple mechanical processes. Once the wind turbine is up and running there are few running costs.
- Large-scale wind farms can be built at sea to exploit the UK and surrounding seas’ abundant wind flow without cluttering the landscape.
