Why invest in wind energy?
Why not harness the power of the wind for your benefit? Instead of complaining about it you should make use of this abundant natural resource.
It could be used to power your home or business. If you have a rural property then a small wind turbine is the perfect technology for the Shetland climate. There are three main benefits for owners:
- Earn significant financial returns through the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) scheme, which guarantees a set price for every unit of electricity generated by the turbine. The more wind there is – the more money it will pay back
- Reduce ongoing electricity bills by up to 70%, whilst protecting against future energy price rises which are predicted on the open market
- Increase the buildings ‘green’ credentials by generating electricity from a renewable source which operates without polluting the atmosphere with carbon dioxide
