Continued strong demand for small wind in the UK has seen Evance recently expand its facility, doubling in size to increase its manufacturing capability, and its workforce has also grown by 25% over the last year.
“2011 was a record year for Evance and we look forward to a strong 2012,” says Kevin Parslow, CEO of Evance Wind Turbines.
“We’ve seen strong demand for turbines and we’re keen for the Government to continue its support for this important emerging renewables sector through stable feed-in tariffs that encourage the wider adoption of small scale wind turbines by individuals, communities and small businesses. With energy costs rising by around 20% this year and possibly more in the future years, wind energy is a great benefit.”
