December 2013 saw Evance R9000 small wind turbines operate continuously across the UK, despite extremely high winds, generating record levels of electricity.
“December was a great month for wind energy production, with R9000 owners across the country seeing record-breaking production,” comments Kevin Parslow, CEO of Evance Wind Turbines.
•In Devon a number of home owners saw their turbines producing between 1,400 – 1,650kWh
•An Evance turbine in Derbyshire generated over 1,000kWh
•In West Yorkshire production of over 1,500kWh was recorded
•An R9000 turbine in Orkney, one of hundreds supporting residents on the islands, produced over 2,500kWh of electricity
“To put these generation figures into perspective, based on the purchase cost of electricity(i) and the income from the Feed-in Tariff, these figures equate to between £440-£850 for the month of December,” said Kevin Parslow.
“Our turbine has proven its efficiency and reliability in some of the harshest weather conditions, and we continue to see many new customers via referrals,” added Kevin Parslow. “Still many people who have not seen our R9000 turbine don’t realise just how small and discreet it is; large wind farm turbines can be taller than the London Eye (135m), whereas our turbine is only the height of a mature tree (18m).”
