Domestic Wind Turbines Scotland

Domestic wind turbines are just one of many new methods people are using to generate energy and electricity in Scotland in 2023. With the recent surge in energy bills, specifically electric its no wonder homeowners are seeking more efficient and economic ways to power their homes such as solar panel installation and more efficient electric heating.

Currently, parts of the UK and Scotland has the largest capacity of offshore wind globally, with approximately 10GW in operation off its shores. Renewable energy is an essential part of the Scottish government’s plan to ensure the country reaches net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Therefore, there has never been a better time to install domestic wind turbine in your home. This green decision cuts out or at least reduces the need for intermediaries supplying electricity, while helping limit your homes carbon footprint.

In these high-inflation post-corona virus pandemic times, cutting down expensive utility bills is essential. 

 On this page of our website Home Renewables Scotland aim to break down why this sleek, small wind turbine system is an increasingly popular (and prudent) energy choice for homeowners in Scotland and which is the windiest country in Europe.

What Is A Domestic Wind Turbine?

A domestic or small wind turbine is a green energy device that turns wind energy into electricity which can then power your home. This device is a smaller version of larger wind turbines seen on wind farms and uses an aerodynamic force to harness the breeze and turn any wind into clean electricity.

How Does It Work?

Wind turbines work by harnessing the power of aerodynamics. As the wind blows, it pushes against the turbine’s rotor blades, spinning them and turning a shaft inside the wind turbine. This motion powers an internal generator, turning the kinetic energy generated into electricity.

Home / domestic wind turbines are smaller versions of regular wind turbines found in wind farms. However, they are big enough to generate enough energy to meet your domestic electrical consumption needs.

When determining the location of your wind turbine, we recommend placing it in a high-elevation position away from obstructing buildings and trees to offset any interference. Hence why domestic wind turbines work best in windy rural and coastal areas.

Benefits Of A Small Home Wind Turbine

The wind is one of Scotland’s greatest natural resources. A large percentage of Europe’s wind energy blows over the UK, making Scotland in particular, literally the windiest country in Europe. The use of small wind turbines ensures the generation of renewable energy that not only benefits the climate, but reduces your own personal carbon footprint and energy bills.

Other tangible benefits of installing a small wind turbine in your home include:                 

Clean source of fuel

Wind energy has low to no carbon emissions. This energy generation system does not pollute the air or cause a rise in greenhouse gases like coal or natural gas, limiting environmental, human health, and economic damage.

Highly sustainable

The wind is a highly sustainable form of energy. When the sun heats the atmosphere, it generates wind, which, in turn, creates electricity. Because the sun and wind will never deplete, wind energy is sustainable for the long term, producing energy harnessed to supply the grid.

Delivers significant cost savings

Home/domestic wind turbines may be expensive to instal, but they provide long-term cost savings, helping you cut back on energy consumption and lowering your energy bills over the long term. Homeowners looking for installations may also be eligible monthly finance deals.

Aesthetically pleasing

Small domestic wind turbines come in many innovative and sleek designs, and unlike the turbines on wind farms won’t be an eyesore when installed on your property. If you like futuristic, subtle and modern designs, you won’t be disappointed with our domestic wind turbines.

How Much to Install a Wind Turbine in Your Home?

The cost of installing a domestic/home wind turbine depends on various factors, including the wind turbine size and estimated annual output and the installer’s total costs. Typically, a 1.5kW pole-mounted turbine costs £7,000 – £10,000, a 2.5kW turbine costs £12,500 – £18,000, and a 6kW wind turbine, £23,000 – £34,000.

Depending on your location in the UK, a small wind turbine system can lower your electricity bill significantly. A 5kW turbine can generate approximately 7,500 kWh annually, delivering cost savings of £350 yearly and reducing your carbon footprint by 1.9 tonnes.

Scotland is likely to deliver the biggest savings. As the windiest country in Europe with the highest recorded gust of 142 mph at Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, in 1989, you are likely to enjoy significantly reduced energy bills when you install a small wind electric system in your home.
