Proven Energy 6KW Wind Turbine
I am in the process of applying for planning permission for a Proven Energy 6KW wind turbine on a 15 mast. My application is 7/2006/4107 with the Lake District National Park Authority. My searches show that a 6KW turbine was approved in the park in September, albeit on a 9m tower, so I am not applying for a ground breaking precedent.
Has anyone got any useful information and/or experience about the process of installing a wind turbine and the actual output. I am siting the trubine in open ground, at the top of a gentle slope to the SW, about 250m from the house. Estimated windspeed is 6m/s. I will be applying for a grant once planning permission is granted, do you know how long this process takes? Realistically, I will not be able to start work on the foundations until the ground had dried out, driving a 4wd tractor or JCB across the fields will make a site fit for mud wrestling!
