Wind turbines present attractive opportunities for landowners with suitable sites. Once built, wind turbines take very little land, therefore farmers can continue grazing cattle and sheep or cultivating the land right up to the base of the turbines and likewise land can be utilised up to the base of the turbines in an industrial or commercial situation.
We are proactive in our approach to securing our development opportunities and offer our Land Partners the option of income either from a rental income, a one off payment at completion of financial close or an equity stake and dividend payments in our project company.
What we are looking for:-
Brownfield or Industrial Land Sites:
Sites of the above nature at exposed locations anywhere in the UK and Europe would be considered for wind turbine development. We favour partnerships with landowners that synergise with our offer due to the need to offset electricity drawn from the grid against clean energy produced by the wind turbines.
Agricultural Land Sites:
Poor grade agricultural land sites that are outside of any area of outstanding natural beauty or area of special scientific interest. Your land will be outside of a flood plain zone in an exposed location clear of any tall trees.
- Site must be an area of at least 10 hectares and must be at least 400m from the nearest residential dwelling.
- Site must have good access via a roadway, track or hard standing to allow crane and articulated lorry access during construction.
- We will carry out a desktop evaluation looking at the local planning policy guidelines possible constraints and grid connection options to establish feasibility. If feasible our standard documentation makes the process of entering into the Option and Lease for the site a straight forward legal process.
