Exports of Ecotricity's small windmills to Japan passes £1million worth

British green energy company, Ecotricity, has sold more than £1 million of small windmills to Japan, a country now keener on renewables since its nuclear plant disaster, through its Britwind subsidiary.

ecotricity jap export peopleBritwind has now shipped 130 small 5kW wind turbines to Japan in the past 18 months, with a further 30 windmills set to be dispatched by the end of March - an order totalling more than £1.3 million. Launched in November 2014, the subsidiary produces windmills that are designed and made in Britain.

This latest shipment will include the very first of Britwind's new H15 windmills – a 15kW machine that can power the equivalent of 13 homes. A team from the company will show off the new windmill at Wind Expo 2017, Tokyo, which runs from 1-3 March 2017.

Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, says: "I like what's happening in Japan in response to the Fukishima nuclear incident. The Japanese government is backing renewable energy and has created a real opportunity for wind power.

"Japan will receive our first ever 15kW windmill, which has just come out of R&D. We've built on the engineering experience of the 5kW machine, which is the most successful small windmill to ever to come out of Britain.

ecotricity jap export"The H15 is the beginning of a family of small windmills to choose from depending on the wind conditions, with vertical-axis machines coming in the future."

Standing at an average height of 25m, the Britwind H15 horizontal-axis windmill has a power rating of 15kW. It's available in two versions to optimise use in higher or lower wind speed sites, and is designed for low maintenance, with only three wearing parts.

Ecotricity claim H15 windmills will be suitable for many types of landowners from farmers and rural properties, to schools, sporting clubs, as well as small, medium and large businesses.

Ecotricity was founded in 1995 with a strong focus on being a green energy company. It now supplies almost 200,000 customers across Britain from a growing fleet of wind and sun parks. The company is a 'not-for-dividend' enterprise that invests back a percentage per customer in building new sources of green electricity.
