#6 Turbines now commissioned

22 Jan 2016

The turbines are now commissioned. We received our MCS certificates and applied for the Feed in Tariff last week prior to the deadline. The turbines have begun producing power at a limited rate. This will be increased as the local energy use scheme is gradually brought into service, tested and balanced with the turbines production and all safety checks are complete. We will be ramping up production as soon as we can. This is an innovative scheme and we expected a few issues to arise but our very capable technicians are getting them all steadily sorted.

About the Project

Fetlar Wind Ltd proposes to install 2 x 25Kw C & F wind turbines on the Setter croft in Fetlar. These will generate we estimate approx. 197Mwh per annum. Saving around 85 tonnes of CO2. The aim is to use as much of the energy generated as possible locally, to supply connected properties.

Income for the scheme will be derived from the Feed in Tariff and any grid exports.

The Fetlar Green Energy Scheme was developed by Fetlar Developments Ltd to make use of & distribute the power produced by Fetlar Wind’s turbines.
