WIND TURBINES

Harnessing the power with wind turbines to generate renewable energy is an increasingly popular and practical choice for those looking to reduce their reliance on traditional energy sources.

At K Higgins Electrical and Solar PV, we offer specialist advice and support for sourcing and installing wind turbines of up to 1200W for both homes and businesses. By investing in wind energy, you can enjoy a sustainable and cost-effective solution that contributes to a greener future.

Benefits of Wind Energy For Homes

Installing a wind turbine at home offers several compelling benefits, enhancing both your energy independence and sustainability:

Energy Independence:
With a wind turbine, you can generate your own electricity, reducing or even eliminating your reliance on the grid. This provides greater energy security, especially in areas prone to power outages.

Cost Savings:
Over time, a wind turbine can significantly reduce your electricity bills. Once installed, the wind is a free resource, meaning your ongoing energy costs are minimal.

Environmental Impact:
Wind energy is a clean, renewable source of power. By using wind turbines, you can reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to the fight against climate change.
Increased Property Value:
Homes equipped with renewable energy systems are increasingly attractive to environmentally-conscious buyers. A wind turbine can enhance your property’s value and marketability.
Sustainability:
Wind turbines produce no emissions or pollutants, making them a sustainable energy source that supports a healthier environment.

Government Incentives:
Various SEAI grants and incentives are available to support the installation of wind turbines, making it a more affordable option for homeowners.

Benefits of Wind Energy for Businesses

Businesses can also benefit significantly from installing wind turbines, gaining both operational and reputational advantages:

Cost Efficiency:
Wind turbines can substantially lower electricity costs for businesses. The savings on energy bills can be redirected to other areas of the business, enhancing overall profitability.
Energy Security:
By generating your own electricity, your business becomes less vulnerable to power outages and fluctuations in energy prices. This stability can be crucial for operational continuity.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR):
Installing wind turbines demonstrates a tangible commitment to sustainability. This aligns with CSR goals and showcases your company’s dedication to environmental stewardship.
Enhanced Reputation:
Businesses that invest in renewable energy can enhance their brand image, attracting eco-conscious customers and clients. It positions your business as a forward-thinking and responsible entity.
Employee Satisfaction:
Demonstrating a commitment to sustainability can also boost employee morale and retention. Research shows employees are increasingly looking to work for companies that prioritise environmental responsibility.
Regulatory Compliance:
As environmental regulations become stricter, generating your own renewable energy can help ensure compliance with future standards, avoiding potential penalties.
Government Grants & Incentives:
Similar to homeowners, businesses can benefit from various grants and incentives designed to support the adoption of renewable energy technologies.

Financial support for wind turbines

Wind turbines that meet European and international benchmarks can take advantage of a depreciation regime for corporation tax under the Accelerated Capital Allowances scheme. Farmers installing wind turbines for agricultural use can also claim a V.A.T. refund. You may be eligible for further grants and financial support – talk to us to find out more.

How Wind Turbines Generate Renewable Energy

The sun heats the Earth unevenly and creates warm air currents. These air currents move around to balance temperatures, generating large-scale movement of air around the Earth. This movement helps distribute heat around the planet and drives weather patterns. Global winds include major wind belts such as the trade winds, westerlies, and polar easterlies.
This wind energy can be captured by the wind turbine, which converts the kinetic energy into electricity. As the wind turns the blades of the turbine, it spins a shaft connected to a generator. This generator then produces the electricity that can be used to power your home or business. By generating your own renewable energy, you become less reliant on the grid, reducing your energy costs and environmental footprint.
