LAND owners rushing to pre-register wind turbine installations for the Feed-in Tariff before the end of the year to guarantee their tariff rate, may not be aware that the cut-off date of the 31 December 2013 applies only to applications for generators above 50kW.
It does not affect installations of small wind turbines which will continue to deliver an unchanged FiT until 1 April 2014.
Kingspan Wind’s UK Wind Manager Gavin Kerr commented: “Micro-generation plays a significant role within the energy sector in the UK. Potential wind customers need to be aware that any installation below 50kW does not require pre-accreditation and is not affected by the December 31 deadline which only applies to medium and large scale wind.
“Land owners, developers and investors can progress with confidence into the New Year if they are considering installing turbines rated below 50kW.”
Kingspan Wind’s world leading KW6 and the newly launched KW15 are proving popular with land owners, developers and investors throughout the UK.
Kerr added “we are experiencing significant demand for both our popular KW6 and our new KW15 wind turbine, which are helping users to significantly reduce their energy bills whilst providing an additional source of income from the Feed in Tariff scheme”
