Could I install a wind turbine on a farm?

Yes, and many wind turbines are installed on working farms. Generally speaking, after installation, a wind turbine on a farm will have negligible impact on the day-to-day operation of the farm.

Assuming your site has a good average wind speed, a wind turbine (once planning consent is obtained) would prove to be a very worthwhile investment and provide additional income to your farm. If you would prefer to not invest your own capital we work with a number of investors who will lease sites in return of a percentage of the revenue from the wind turbine: this provides a zero-risk income stream which can be many tens-of-thousands of pounds a year. See our investment pages for more details.

To check whether your farm is suitable for a wind turbine see ‘what makes a good wind power site?’.
