Do you want to fix your electricity price for the long-term? Do you want someone to do all the arrangement work for free; all you pay is a tackling climate change fixed electricity price? Even better, do you want all of this whilst taking action against climate change? Wind Direct has the answer; a wind turbine project in a box. T he purveyors of energy efficiency solutions gained another boost recently I am often asked about what other benefits an active approach to energy efficiency energy costs Wind Direct sells fixed price electricity to industry having at its own cost developed, installed and maintained a wind turbine on an industrial site.

They have a 94% success rate for planning Stern Report There are numerous measures that can be implemented. These range from simply automating the reading of energy meters to improve cash flow by avoiding overpaying the utility company, through to introducing changes such as consents. 60% of all wind farms built in the UK last year involved Wind Direct and its partners. Recent projects have seen Wind Direct team working with Snowmountain in March, Cambridgeshire and more recently Eastman Chemicals with 2 x 2MW machines in Workington, Cumbria. After identifying a potential site, Wind Direct moves forward with the planning process and the design the economic consequences advanced controls for the heating and ventilation system, and engineering phases. “We work closely with our host to minimise disruption and maximise health & safety,” says Chris Porter. so for example, when delivery doors open, the heating of climate change switches off in that area.
