FER1 Italian incentive program
The new public incentive program in Italy, called FER1, aims to pay for 20 years the energy produced by the wind turbine at a price of € 0.15 for each kWh produced.
Our new WES 34/100 turbine has been developed to obtain the maximum profit from the new FER1 incentive decree. The IRR reference economic index is expected to be between 10% and 15% (depends on the location of installation). With an average annual wind speed of at least 5.5 m/s to 6.0 m/s you can serenely guarantee yourself a great business.
We actually reduced the maximum power output of the original Lagerwey / WES 250kW turbine from 250kW to 100kW in order to comply with the new FER1 incentive scheme up to 100kW. The result is that the wind turbine achieves very fast power at lower wind speeds (with the larger rotor surface). Therefore will have a higher kWh production during the 20 years incentive period.
The WES wind turbine has proven itself a durable, reliable high-performance solution. The first turbines, that have been operational since 1983, are still going strong and continue to generate energy for their owners.
