Wind Energy Direct – Our Background
Founded in 2006 with our main office in Limerick, and our UK offices in Edinburgh and Belfast (trading under the name WED Renewables), Wind Energy Direct is an Irish company with a focus on the Irish and UK Renewable Energy markets. Wind Energy Direct installs wind turbines on the sites of large users. We sell the green electricity produced to the on-site energy user at a long term fixed price via our Finance, Build, Own and Operate model.
Our large energy user customers benefit from price certainty by fixing their energy price for up to 15 years, on-site green wind energy at a significant discount to retail electricity, a reduction in carbon emissions, an improved corporate social responsibility profile and all with no capital outlay. Our model allows our customers to break the link with retail energy price inflation and hedge against future energy price increases.
Our green field site landowners can earn extra income from leasing their properties for 25 years to host wind turbines, while continuing to use the land right up to the base of the turbines.
