We at Holdcroft SFW Electrical Contactors try and stay at the forefront of the new technological advances that are being made in the renewable energy industry. We believe in the convenience and efficiency of sustainable and renewable energy, both domestically and commercially.
Our expertise in this area includes the preparation and upgrading of areas, for the installation of wind turbines with our partner firm. Wind turbines are now a real and affordable choice of energy supply for domestic households and businesses, and can offer a substantial amount of energy efficiently.
The benefits of wind turbines
• Cut your electricity bills: wind is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be reduced.
• Get paid for what you generate: through Feed-in-Tariffs, you get paid for the electricity you generate even if you use it. What you don't use, you can export to the local grid - and get paid for that too.
• Cut your carbon footprint: wind electricity is green, renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants.
• Store electricity for a calm day: if your home isn't connected to the national grid you can store excess electricity in batteries and use it when there is no wind.
How do wind turbines work?
Wind turbines use large blades to catch the wind. When the wind blows, the blades are forced round, driving a turbine which generates electricity. The stronger the wind, the more electricity produced.
Wind turbines are eligible for the UK government’s Feed-in-Tariffs which means you can earn money from the electricity generated by your turbine. You can also receive payments for the electricity you don't use and export to the local grid. To be eligible, the installer and wind turbine product must be certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). If your turbine is not connected to the local electricity grid (known as off grid), unused electricity can be stored in a battery for use when there is no wind.
