Site lease or turbine purchase - your choice!
If you wish to earn revenue from a wind turbine on your land, there are two main options:
* Lease your site - 20 years income with no investment, hassle or risk
* Buy your turbine - invest and earn up to £300,000 pa for 20 years (using mid 2015 rates)
Lease your site
If you would prefer to earn an annual income from leasing your site, without the risk or financial investment of owning your own turbine, Windflow UK and our Dealers can assess your site for a lease arrangement.
We finance and manage the complex phase to gain planning and grid connection consents. If we can successfully develop a project we will finance and manage the installation of the turbine and its operation and maintenance. Several landowners in the UK have signed up to a lease arrangement with our development arm and planning permission has been granted for turbines on their land. The turbine on Westray is an example of a landowner leasing their site rather than owning the wind turbine.
Although returns may not be as high as owning your own turbine, site leasing takes the hassle and risk out of the project for the landowner.

Buy your turbine
A single 500 kW turbine is at a sweet-spot in the Feed In Tariff and is an attractive option for those that have the desire and financial ability to own their own wind turbine.
Windflow UK and our can help you with the modeling and analysis of your wind project in order to optimise your return and, if desired, can help you develop your own project or find partners. We can also assist you to secure finance and insurance. Most of the large UK banks lend for Windflow projects thanks to its IEC certified design and proven track record. They are pre-approved for finance by several major UK lenders. For those without the security to access commercial lending, Windflow can offer Vendor Finance to qualifying projects.
Buying your turbine maximises the income you will receive from the project and is the preferred route for those with the financial resources.
