The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread
Duncan is the owner of The Thoughtful Bread Company, a small bakery in Bath. Keen on doing their bit for the environment, his company is looking to invest in renewable technologies in the near future and is using the Power Predictor to make an informed decision.

Blown Away by Savings
Aston Farm in Exmoor National Park has been owned by the Halliday family for over 150 years. Using the Power Predictor, George Halliday was able to discover that a small wind turbine could help not just to reduce his CO2 emissions, but also save him nearly £7000 a year! To reduce turbulence from surrounding trees and buildings, George mounted the Power Predictor in a local field using his home-made ten meter mast. For those of you not quite as ambitious as George, there is a range of masts available at http://store.powerpredictor.com
I found the Power report very helpful in identifying the right turbine for me and I am very happy with the Power Predictor's performance overall."

A Rotten Roof for Wind
It avoids wasting your money on a piece of kit which is not right for you"
- Dave Hampton
What would happen if you put a wind turbine on your roof in an urban area with low wind speeds? The Power Predictor's answer - Not a lot! Now working as a Carbon Coach, Dave Hampton placed his Power Predictor on his roof on his London home only to discover that a typical wind turbine might never pay back his investment and he could be better off installing solar panels.
