I can’t get anywhere near that for 1.3 mw wind. When did you fix?
Apologies for the novice question

I am a non farmer with a general interest in renewable energy. What does 1.3mw wind mean? 1.3mw produced per hour, day, week, month, year? I've tried googling but the question is so amatuer that even Google does not return a definitive result!

Thanks

1.3mw (megawatt) is 1300 Kw (kilowatt) of total installed capacity (TIC). Effectively, that is the total amount of electricity the generator can produce in one hour. All the definitions are used as part of the Feed in Tariff (Fit) Schemes

In what way or the market being overhauled? Genuine question
I think it is the embedded benefits which are costs and receipts associated with the distribution of the electricity from the point of generation to the end user that are all being reviewed by Ofgem. We currently as an Embedded Generator receive around £7 per Mega Watt added to our Power Purchase Price but this varies in each area (DNO)

Thanks for that. So trebor07 would get an income of £780k based on him getting 6.85p per kWh?

Just checking in calculating correctly....nothing specific to trebor07

I think it will be very wind dependent. The 1.3 Mw will be the max output , sadly the wind is very dependent on location.
I can take you to two turbines which have not achieved 8% of their rated figures

Project Lamport 2020

  • 152
  • 0

Project Lamport, now in its seventh year, is the UK’s leading R&D trials event. The original concept aimed to develop a cultural approach to blackgrass control, but has since evolved over the years. The site now explores improving soil health, as well as a comprehensive research project that investigates the impact of cultivations, compaction and cover crops on soil structure, organic matter and microbiology.

Expect weekly updates on Project Lamport, allowing you to participate in the entire journey rather than just the final product. These updates conclude with the official Project Lamport site demonstration and a live Q&A with our experts on the 15th of July.
