Winds are caused by the heating of the atmosphere from the sun, the rotation of the earth and its irregular surfaces (mountains and valleys). All these factors make Wind Power a by-product of the sun and therefore a form of solar energy.
A Wind Turbine is a piece of machinery which uses rotor blade technology to harness the energy of wind and turn it into electricity. Wind turns the propeller-like blades around a rotor, which spins a generator that creates electricity. For maximum efficiency Wind Power works best when used in combination with an additional power source. For example, you could choose to combine it with another type of renewable energy such as Solar PV.
Unlike solar, wind can be generated throughout the winter season and also during the evening, making wind turbines an attractive option for businesses, particularly those who consume high amounts of electricity at night. Whether you are looking to boost your business’s green initiatives, demonstrate your Corporate Social Responsibility or reduce your carbon footprint to meet Net Zero goals, Wind Power could be an advantageous option for your business.
Dependant on setup and if you choose to combine Wind Power with another renewable energy source, additional revenue can be received from selling excess energy back to the grid in the form of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
Whilst the initial set-up costs might seem greater than other investment opportunities, once the equipment and infrastructure is in place it will deliver energy to your business for a long period of time. Wind itself is also free, so the technology could mean lower utility bills for your business.
The positive impact on the environment is also another reason to choose Wind Power. By utilising Wind energy, you can reduce your carbon footprint to improve health and living conditions all whilst being kind to the planet.
The first steps would be to have an initial conversion to establish your needs and aspirations. From this we can work with our trusted partners to design and profile the technology in order to meet your current energy demands.
We would then do a site audit, which would involve visiting the premises, assessing your data and energy usage. From this we can then work with our trusted partners to design and profile the technology in order to meet your current energy demands.
A full proposal, including return on investment will be put together and sent across to you. This should contain everything you need to decide. We can then review this proposal with you and undertake any negotiations. If you decide to go ahead, we will be able to support you through the project and answer any queries you have.
Solar PV and Battery Storage
Soaring energy prices and volatile markets, have pushed many businesses to put their roof space to good use by turning to solar PV as an energy-efficient alternative to cut bills. Investing in solar could help your business protect a significant portion of its energy usage from increasing costs and could put you ahead of growing legislation as the government focuses on net zero. Not only could it bring substantial financial benefits it’s also becoming increasing attractive due to the positive impact on the environment.
Outsourced Energy Management

What is Net Zero? Are Businesses Ready?
Lots of us have heard the term Net Zero but a lot of us are not aware of what this means. Before we look at how we can achieve this, it is important to look at what is meant by this. In simple terms, it refers to the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed by the atmosphere.
Sustainable fashion relates to clothing that has been made in an ethical way and this includes a range of areas such as the premises that they are made in, fair pay for workers, the use of recyclable materials or materials that don’t harm the planet etc.
Are we doing enough for future generations to live sustainably?
As part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development there are a collection of 17 interlinked sustainable goals that have been set out to re-affirm the commitment by the world to sustainable development.
