Probably a return if could get planning for a 1.5mw +machine.
Probably have to budget £2-2.5M Capex for that size turbine. No subsidy for onshore wind at the moment
Decent site would produce 3.8 million Kw @ 6 pence = £228,000 per year. Service maintenance £50k leaving £178,000 for finance,rates tax etc
 
I would have thought with the push for green energy planning would be straightforward or whats the point of it all ?
Sadly not the case! Councils are all too quick to call a climate emergency then in the next breath claim they will be carbon neutral by [insert clueless date] but then don’t get behind potential projects!

For this to happen it ne de to come from the top down, it’s in motion but takes forever to trickle down

I had some rollover money and was desperate to get in on the wind turbine game but couldn't get planning, in the end got industrial property which has brought in just under 10% per annum plus the buildings and yard are an appreciating asset, so glad in the end the turbine planning was knocked back. The smart folks were maybe the ones who leased a few sqm of turbine land for £000ks!
