Small is beautiful at Ecotricity
UK company’s Britwind subsidiary launches H15 turbine
Ecotricity is launching a new small wind turbine through its Britwind subsidiary.
The Britwind H15 stands at an average height of 25 metres and the horizontal-axis turbine has a power rating of 15kW. It is available in two versions to optimise use in higher or lower wind speed sites.
The company said that the Britwind H15 is “set to bring big wind performance to small wind, generating electricity at almost half the cost of the best-selling small windmill on the market”.
Ecotricity is also introducing creating a new kind of green energy partnership between itself and its customers.
Ecotricity founder Dale Vince (pictured) said: “The Britwind H15 is at the cutting edge of windmill technology – it’s super-efficient, cheap to maintain, and cuts the cost of making energy. Our commercial model is also at the cutting edge – we make the energy with our customers, where they live and work, and we share the benefits with them.
“It’s about democratising the energy market – our aim is to bring lower bills and energy independence to homes and businesses in Britain, and to export the same opportunity to other parts of the world.”
