Small scale on farm wind 25kw

Coo man

Looking too pit up a wind turbine to try and cut down on buying electricity. What’s the best options ? I’ve been told if I get a grid connection it will probably cost 8k and then a transformer upgrade of 3k would be needed . Is ecocycle a decent company for small scale wind ?


depends on the size of the turbine you are after, you do not require a grid connection as long as you keep to 16A per phase maximum,


it is not too important ref the kw output as long as the inverter is locked to 16A per phase max,
have you thought about solar, they are a lot less hassle, fit and forget apart from the occasional cleaning,
you can get 280w panels for about £60 each,
inverters have 10 year warranty with solar,


If you don't have any other generation, and assuming you have a 3-phase connection, then a single Gaia would fit under the 16A limit. on a typical open 6m/s you should get around 38MWh a year. Eocycle are pretty decent and offer a fixed price package - its a 25kW machine so to compare that would produce about 73MWh but you would need a grid connection agreement under G99 so those costs need to be added back in. I would be happy to look at some production figures for you.
