Site lease or turbine purchase - your choice!

Benefits of a Windflow turbine for your project, whether you are a landowner, business or community group

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 revenue on generation of up to 2,023 MWh/yr.

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, there are several developers of renewable energy projects in the UK, including power companies, who may be interested to partner with you.

Professional input is normally needed to manage the complex work of gaining planning permission and grid connection consents.  If successful, the developer will then finance and manage the installation of the turbine and its operation and maintenance.

Windflow UK has developed eight turbines in Scotland during the Feed-in Tariff years 2013-16 on their land. The turbine on Westray is an example of a landowner leasing their site rather than owning the wind turbine.  Windflow UK is not currently acting as a developer.

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 can be an attractive option for those that have the desire and financial ability to own their own wind turbine. Depending on the value of wind power, it may be a better option to consider a small to mid-size wind farm, 5 MW (or 10 turbines) and upwards.

Windflow UK can help you with the modelling and analysis of your wind project in order to optimize 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.

Buying your turbine(s) maximizes the income you will receive from the project and is the preferred route for those with the financial resources.
