An animal welfare charity is set to dramatically cut its energy costs following the installation of a wind turbine.
Renewable Solutions built the 11KW turbine in RSPCA’s centre in Brent Knoll, Somerset. The firm claims it could help the centre save around £10,000 in annual bills.
David Hunt, Head of Commercial at Renewable Solutions said: “We estimate that the wind turbine will ultimately produce half of the electricity used by the centre and help to significantly reduce their annual running costs.”
Rita Hinton, Branch Secretary of the North Somerset Animal Centre added: “The welfare of the animals in our care is of prime importance and if the temperature drops below a certain level, the heating automatically switches on and is a massive cost to us.
“We are now advising other RSPCA centres on our installation in the hope that more projects can be completed.”
