Xzeres 442SR25th March 2016
The Xzeres 442SR (M) rated 10kW installed by MWP at Fidden Farm on the Isle of Mull passed the 80,000 kWh in March. The machine was installed in November 2012 and after some commissioning problems is now working satisfactorily. The average annual power output is 25,000 kWh. The turbine provides power to the farm and returns surplus power to the grid. The customer benefits in 3 ways:-
1. Each kWh produced attracts a government subsidy, known as FITs.
2. The electricity used by the farm reduces the demand from the grid and hence reduces the cost of mains electricity.
3. 50% of the power output is assumed to be taken back by the grid and the customer is paid a small amount for each kWh
The FITs is paid for 20 years and increases in line with inflation.

Kingspan Energise Scheme
22nd September 2015
If you have a piece of land with plenty of wind, why not take advantage of the Energise scheme, run by Kingspan wind? Kingspan does all the work and you get the electricity from the machine absolutely FREE. There are four steps:-
Step 1 – Mull Wind Power and Kingspan survey your site.
Step 2 – If the wind speeds meet the required standard, a contract is issued
Step 3 – We then obtain the necessary planning and grid approvals.
Step 4 – Turbine is then installed and commissioned from as little as 8 weeks from initial survey.
