Small wind turbines achieve increased energy generation
Published: 2 May 2012 - Joe Bush
A series of tests over the last few months on the Evance R9000 small wind turbine has shown its energy generation has increased by over four percent to 9,167kWh at a wind speed of five metres per second.
The R9000 5kW turbine was one of the first small wind turbines to be fully certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) in July 2010, and since then has received system improvements.
Many Evance customers have benefitted from higher than expected energy generation as the R9000 system improvements were implemented several months ago. For example, Clive Breeze was pleasantly surprised with the energy generated from his recent installation, “In the first three weeks alone, the R9000 turbines exceeded the predicted energy generation targets by ten percent and the first quarterly electricity bill showed a reduction of over £300 per month.”
“We’re delighted that our R9000 turbine is proving so efficient in energy production as this translates directly into a faster return on investment for our customers,” said Kevin Parslow, CEO of Evance Wind Turbines. “We design and manufacture our turbines here in the UK, so our customers are quick to benefit from any improvements that we make.”
