Amazing 10% off New Wind Turbine With Eco Building Products
Eco Building Products Ltd strive to offer its clients new and exciting products, and can now offer a breakthrough wind energy system for home or business featuring a revolutionary patented gearless Blade Tip Power System (BTPS). As the local distributor, they are expecting great interest.
Why is it so different to other wind turbines?
The WindTronics BTPS6500 Wind Turbine is a gearless wind turbine that harnesses the power of the wind to generate clean renewable energy. The system measures just 1.8m in diameter, weights 77kg and is able to produce 2000 kWh/yr in Class 3 winds at 33ft – this represents around 40% of an average household’s annual electricity needs, therefore saving between £800 and £1000 off your annual electricity bill*
*Average household annual electricity bill depends on annual kW/hr usage and price you pay your energy supplier per kWh. Figures quoted are based on DECC average UK household electric 4,198 kWh/yr
How does it work?
The BTPS6500 Wind Turbine creates power at the blade tips, rather than the complicated gearing of traditional turbines, drastically reducing the mechanical resistance which results in far greater energy production, from wind speeds as low as 2 mph (0.9m/s)
Operations Director, Ian Greenfield commented...“We are already receiving alot of interest from farmers, local businesses and utility companies for this ground breaking product. Small scale wind power has always been popular with our clients, but cost and planning issues have put them off. This turbine offers a cost effective, low impact turbine. Working from wind speeds as low as 2 mph it offers potentially 24/7 energy generation. We have them on the shelves now, and can offer a full supply and fit package! “

Hydrostat exists to help customers reduce their financial and environmental costs of water and energy.
For example, Hydrostat is an authorised distributor of the Waterguard System. Waterguard is a device which delivers three complementary elements:
- Offering web-based access to half-hourly water consumption data from your sites.
- Restricting the flow of water at certain times, e.g. overnight and weekends, to reduce the impact of minor leaks and wasted water.
- Minimising the risk of flooding from burst pipes by monitoring and managing the flow of water.
As one of the founders of Hydrostat, Ashley Baxter can bring the following experience and expertise to customers:
- Reducing overall water consumption of Nottingham City Council by 25% (saving £300,000 per annum)
- Reducing energy consumption at Gala Coral Group by 10m kWh per annum (saving £1m)
- Introducing new technologies and smarter ways of working to reduce energy and water bills
- Over a decade of working within local government and the NHS.
In these times of financial austerity Hydrostat realises it isn’t easy to find funding, even for invest-to-save projects. For this reason Hydrostat is flexible in its business model. Customers can choose to pay either fixed charges for goods and services, or alternatively Hydrostat will take actions with no upfront charges, but will accept a share of the savings from the actions taken. The latter model might be attractive as a no-risk option.
