PROJECT SUMMARY

To develop a further income stream for a working farm by erecting a second hand reconditioned 150kW wind turbine on his farm land.

BACKGROUND

William David Whan was keen to explore the renewable energy potential of the land he farms. He approached DRAP with a proposal to erect a second hand, 150kW wind turbine on the farm. He had already assessed the feasibility of the project before-hand, establishing that a 150kW turbine on a 24m mast could generate a gross return of £55,795.

ACTIVITIES

DRAP funding enabled the applicant to purchase and install a wind turbine on his farm. The generated electricity is then sold back to the National Grid.
