Latest tests confirm increased energy generation of small wind turbine

Paul Boughton
During the the past few months, the Evance R9000 small wind turbine has undergone further tests which have confirmed its energy generation has increased by over 4 per cent to 9,167kWh at a wind speed of 5 metres per second.

The R9000 5kW turbine was one of the first small wind turbines to be fully certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) in July 2010, and since then has received system improvements.

Many Evance customers have already benefitted from higher than expected energy generation as the R9000 system improvements were implemented several months ago.

For example, Clive Breeze was pleasantly surprised with the energy generated from his recent installation: “In the first three weeks alone, the R9000 turbines exceeded the predicted energy generation targets by 10 per cent and the first quarterly electricity bill showed a reduction of over £300 per month.”

“We’re delighted that our R9000 turbine is proving so efficient in energy production as this translates directly into a faster return on investment for our customers,” said Kevin Parslow, CEO of Evance Wind Turbines. “We design and manufacture our turbines here in the UK, so our customers are quick to benefit from any improvements that we make.”

“Our R9000 machine accounted for a third of all small wind turbines sold in the UK last year – making it the UK’s small wind turbine of choice. We look forward to maintaining our leadership position as we continue to develop our renewable energy system offerings,” concludes Kevin.
