* We make the following assumptions in addition to those you may choose to change above

  • Illustrative turbine performance figures only. Figures are given in good faith but do not constitute "Financial Advice".
  • Exact Turbine subsidy figures may depend on grants available at particular locations and other factors.
  • Windspeed and elevation data is our interpretation of data modeled at specific points by a number of data providers.
  • Rotor heights shown are for a ground upward measurement, unobstructed by buildings or trees in the nearby vicinity
  • Tariffs shown presume installation after
  • Yearly output does not include a calculation for degradation over time
  • Only currently MCS certified turbines are shown. Other turbines exist and may gain accreditation in the future
  • Turbine technical information uses data supplied by a number of sources which may include the manufacturer
  • Installation costs will vary, an average figure has been estimated.
  • Exact equipment costs are estimated based on retail prices in 2011 and will vary.
  • You should consider other factors such as sound, appearance, and localised factors prior to making a decision
