He was therefore, potentially, going to be hard customer to please! However, Scaled Energy has managed to do what it does best and deliver a project that even the most particular of customers is very happy with.

Mike has an 800kW turbine on another farm of his, but at his home farm, West Knockenbaird, an Endurance E-3120 turbine was commissioned in mid-October 2012. The turbine provides most of the farmhouse heating, as well as drying timber, and providing energy for a poultry shed on the farm. In addition, the family have recently purchased an electric car which they plan will be powered directly from the turbine.

Mike says:
"We looked at installing something slightly bigger but when it came to planning considerations the 50kW Endurance ended up being the best fit for the site. Endurance turbines have a nice design and simplicity to them and a proven track record so I knew what I wanted."

"When it came to deciding which installation company to work with, I talked with three in total but without doubt Scaled Energy came out top. Zeno Kerr, Managing Director, has a knowledge of the technology that is second to none and the other members of the team demonstrated extremely sound commercial knowledge which was incredibly reassuring."

"They showed to me that they were about far more than just turbine sales - they want to look at the long-term business relationship and they put technology at the top of the agenda. Right from the start I explained the detail of my requirements, such as being able to dry logs and power our electric car, and so the team tailored the project specifically to these requirements."

"When it came to installation, the team worked with impressive care and attention to detail and any minor snagging issues since installation have been dealt with quickly and efficiently."

"We haven't had a particularly windy period in the North East since installation but the turbine has generated in sync with expectations and I have saved myself a significant amount of money on heating oil as well as generating income when we export power."

"Overall I'm very happy. I am saving money but also meeting some of my own green objectives which certainly helps me to sleep well at night."
