Case Study: Carole Inglis, Isle of Skye Fudge Company

0 Comment

We installed an Aircon turbine for Carole to power her business and her home on the Isle of Skye.

What made you decided to install a wind turbine?

I’d had an interest in alternative energy sources for quite a number of years. West Coast Energee had a good track record, and so I got in touch with them for advice on the suitability of our site.

What advice and support did you receive from West Coast energee?

West Coast Energee gave down to earth advice that was easy to understand. As a home based business, Isle of Skye Fudge Company, we have high energy demands throughout the year and especially in the summer months.  Following a site visit, John Daniel and his team confirmed the likely benefits of a 10k turbine through wind projections and potential savings.

What kind of services did you receive with your installation?

It was a bit daunting to think about all the planning procedures, but we received a comprehensive and seamless service from West Coast Energee.

How did you find the installation process?

The groundworks were carried out professionally, and the site tidied on completion. The actual turbine was installed in a day. John Daniel and his team worked through sleet and hail to finish the job. Impressive!

What are your thoughts on the wind turbine so far? Would you recommend it to other groups or organisations?

I love our turbine, it’s mesmerising! I can honestly say that in this, the windiest winter in memory, that watching the FITS meter climbing each day took the sting out of the weather!

Would you recommend West Coast energee?

I was involved in setting up the first community share windfarm on the island (Energy4All’s Ben Aketil site), and would certainly recommend West Coast Energee to any householder, business or community group. I have only praise for my dealings with West Coast Energee, especially with regard to the time frame from initial enquiry to installation and certification. From site visits, quotations and sub-contractors through to supporting documentation, guidance and general customer support, West Coast Energee has delivered every inch of the way.
