What are the benefits for landowners?

 

With the uncertainties surrounding today's rural economy landowners are increasingly looking for ways to diversify the use of their land. Energy production, both from biofuels and harnessing the wind, is proving an excellent means of doing this and already helping to provide a more secure future for the agricultural industry.

 

Landowners who lease land for wind farms receive a financial income for the life of the project which we can link both to the amount of energy generated and the price obtained from selling it.

 

Specific rates depend on a project's size, location, wind speed and proximity to grid lines, but Coriolis are confident that in all cases the packages it can offer are amongst the best available in the market.

 

Beyond the wind farm itself, the Coriolis team also has a good understanding of the challenges facing landowners with cross compliance and the single farm payment and recognise that many farms are now heavily involved with projects within the Environmental Stewardship Scheme.

 

In line with this projects are always developed with a view to maximising the overall income available to a landowner from his land - not just from the wind farm on a stand-alone basis.

Over 95% of the land on which a wind farm is built can continue to be used for farming.
