Background

Gaia-Wind turbines are designed to ensure optimum performance in low to moderate wind speeds (10-12mph) and will deliver up to 80% more energy than other similarly rated wind turbines. This significantly enhances the project economics and maximizes the return on your investment.

Payback Period

For the majority of our installations the estimated payback period is between 5 and 8 years at current electricity prices (based on i. Turbine design life 20 years, ii. No provision has been made for increase in energy costs (Rising energy costs will lowers payback time), iii Calculation excludes any grants that may be available.)

Carbon Emissions

A Gaia-Wind turbine generating around 30,000 kWh of green electricity per year, will offset around 17 tonnes of CO2 emissions from existing energy generation. This is sufficient to bring the carbon footprint of the average four person household back to zero (household energy use + car + air travel).

Other Economic Considerations

Renewable energy sources such as wind are intermittent in nature. It is therefore unlikely that a wind turbine on its own can provide a complete energy solution for a property. However when used in compliment with other energy sources it can play a key role.

A grid connected wind turbine gives the flexibility to import power from the grid when required, or to export energy when there is a surplus. These actions are performed automatically.
