Onshore Wind Energy

Whether you have decided to erect turbines yourself, lease land to a developer, are considering a joint venture with a developer, or are, as yet, unsure, here are a number of considerations to take into account. We provide professional independent advice relating to on-shore wind energy production, planning and lease negotiations; be it to power your home and business, or to benefit from incentives through larger scale wind-farming projects.

We offer advice on:

  • Location & site selection
  • Wind turbine selection
  • Option and lease agreements
  • Access requirements
  • Grid connections
  • Site specific feasibility studies to identify your needs & opportunities
  • The devaluation of rural property in close proximity to wind turbines

Some of the issues to consider before deciding the best option for you include:

Landowner Owned

  • site location & suitability
  • planning permission & your neighbours
  • you benefit from 100% of the FIT

  • rent negotiations
  • maintenance responsibility & insurance
