Windpower Introduction

Renewables First have full project capability and are experienced in taking a windpower project from the initial feasibility studies through the consenting stages and on to turbine installation.

For some clients we take consented sites and take care of everything at the installation stage to see the project through to completion.

Like all renewable technologies, wind power is a complicated area for the unfamiliar. There are good, mediocre and bad wind turbines out there, so it is important to work with a specialist wind company with experience and knowledge of how to deliver good quality and reliable projects.

Learn more about the details of hydropower in our Windpower Learning Centre.

Windpower Installation Phases

Windpower Installation Phases

The chart above shows the process for taking a typical single 900 kW wind turbine project from start to finish. The quickest turnaround is 18 months, though it can be longer for sites with more complex planning applications.

Want to install a wind turbine?

If you are in the UK then take our Wind Site Self-Assessment - Step 1 of our modular Windpower Feasibility Study. It takes about 20 minutes to work through the basic checks to see if your site might be suitable, including:

  • Estimating wind speed
  • Checking proximity of nearby properties
  • Checking site access and approach roads
  • Investigating connection with the grid

If you are in the Republic of Ireland, or overseas, the first step is to consider our modular Windpower Feasibility Study, so please Contact us to discuss your site further.
