Micro Wind Generators

Inherent Energy specialise in the supply of small to medium sized wind generators, rather than those you may be familiar with from seeing wind farm developments. Sizes supplied range from 400 watts – suitable for battery charging on boats and for small cottages, through to 50 kilowatt generators suitable for schools, farms or small factories.

Other than in severely built-up areas, most of the UK is suitable for the installation of wind generators, and the smaller ones can be easily installed by those with the most basic of electrical and engineering capability. Inherent Energy are happy to install generators, or supply wiring diagrams and the benefits of our experience to those wishing to try it for themselves. We also supply similar advice to many of our overseas customers.

Inherent Energy are the UK importers for both the Southwest Windpower (USA), Bergey (USA), and AOC (USA) ranges. We are also distributors for the Marlec and Proven ranges from the UK, and most of the other manufacturers throughout the world. We pride ourselves on recommending the most appropriate wind generator for your particular needs – rather than simply offering you the nearest one from one particular manufacturer’s range.

THE FOLLOWING ARE THE WIND GENERATORS WE MOST COMMONLY SPECIFY – IF YOU DON’T SEE ONE THAT MEETS YOU NEEDS EXACTLY – DON’T HESITATE TO ASK US

 Grants and Funding

1) In 2010 the government plans to introduce a Feed in Tariff which will reward people per kilowatt of electricity generated from their wind turbine.

  • < 1.5 kWp           34.5p per kWh 
  •    1.5 - 15kWp     26.7p per KWh
  •    15 - 100kWp    24.1p per kWh
  •    100 - 500kWp  18.8p per kWh

In addition to the above there will be an 3p per kWh export premium if you sell electricity back to the grid.

2) Scottish governtment Energy Efficiency Action Plan - £10,000 loans for residential investment in energy efficient technolgies

We will guide you through your grant application forms so to maximise the help that is available.
