Energy in the wind
YottaWatt Wind & Hydro, the company branch dedicated to wind and mini-hydroelectric power, provides each customer with comprehensive services ranging from technical, financial and administrative consulting to the implementation of efficient and reliable wind power plants.
YottaWatt Wind & Hydro provides turnkey power plants well-suited for farms, agritourisms and small wind farms.
Saving with energy
The initial investment in a wind plant is paid off thanks to incentives, tax breaks, and proceeds from sales of generated electricity or savings on the electric bill in case of self-consumption. Wind power is definitely among the most mature and closer to "grid parity" renewable technologies. The examples here after show the internal rate of return for power plants of small, medium and large size according to their location on a low, medium or high wind site in Italy.
If the wind plant construction is financed through a loan, the incentives, tax breaks and proceeds from sales of the generated electricity will not only compensate for the loan installments but will also generate positive return. In the examples here after, the simulation hypothesis is based on a fixed loan rate of 5.4%, while the present value of cumulated earnings as shown is based on an annual inflation rate of 2.5%.
Solutions and services
YottaWatt eases the beneficial enjoyment of wind energy by coordinating the entire project, from site survey to implementation and maintenance, taking care of all technical, logistic, administrative and financial aspects for the entire power plant life cycle. YottaWatt guarantees precise financial estimates and provides a qualified consulting service to check the full compliance with applicable legislations.
For your own benefit and peace of mind, YottaWatt Wind & Hydro takes care of the entire management of the Tariffa Omnicomprensiva promoted by the GSE (Gestore dei Servizi Energetici). YottaWatt Wind & Hydro pays special attention to any legislation and regulatory changes in addition to tracking regional funding opportunities.
YottaWatt Wind & Hydro offers solutions tailored to any requirement:
Horizontal and vertical small wind turbines.
YottaWatt Wind & Hydro offers horizontal or vertical axis wind turbines able to produce energy at low wind speeds. Wind power is a great complement to electricity production by photovoltaic plants.
In addition to standard horizontal axis solutions with asynchronous generators, YottaWatt Wind & Hydro offers wind turbines with synchronous generators that require less maintenance, are more reliable and have lower noise levels.
Mini hydroelectric power
YottaWatt Wind & Hydro offers various solutions for generating electric power using water flow rates:
Run-of-the-river hydroelectric plants.
YottaWatt Wind & Hydro offers solutions for the exploitation of streams and small rivers.
In-conduit hydroelectric plants.
Using solutions that harvest would-be dissipated energy, YottaWatt Wind & Hydro allows the exploitation of water in treatment plants such as irrigation canals and local aqueducts.
For your own benefit and peace of mind, YottaWatt Wind & Hydro takes care of the entire management of the authorization process, in particular obtaining the license for the exploitation of public waters, for the Tariffa Omnicomprensiva promoted by the GSE (Gestore dei Servizi Energetici). As usual, YottaWatt Wind & Hydro pays special attention to any legislation and regulatory changes in addition to tracking regional funding opportunities.
