When choosing a turbine, it’s important to consider which FiTs bands will suit your business in terms of being most cost-effective and providing the greatest return.

It may be sensible to go for a smaller-rated turbine and make sure you hit the top of the tariff band, rather than stretching to a larger turbine but being at the bottom end of the next tariff band. For example, a 500kW turbine gives a tariff payment of 17.5p/kWh, while a 550kW turbine gives 9.5p/kWh.
