Renewable energy experts Sustainable Energy Systems Ltd, together with Harrison & Hetherington Land and Property chartered surveyors, have organised the open day tomorrow (February 15).

With the renewable energy sector continuing to expand, the event at East Curthwaite Farm, Wigton, aims to answer many of the practical questions on small wind installations.

East Curthwaite is one of the farms leading the way in the installation of wind turbines.

Director Jonathan Kemp said: “We work with farm businesses from inception through to servicing and maintaining their wind turbine. We welcome all questions and queries farmers may have regarding them, from planning to grid connection and installation to servicing.”

Renewables experts Neil Henderson and Alistair Fell from H&H Land and Property will both be present on the day.

Mr Fell added: “We have been working with many farmers across Cumbria and the Scottish Borders and have a very good track record of achieving planning permission for wind turbines including this one at East Curthwaite.

“We will be very happy to answer any questions people may have and are happy to explain the process and how to maximise your chances of success.”

The open day will run from 10am until 2pm. Contact Sustainable Energy Systems Ltd on 01772 361010 or email:

There will also be an opportunity to book a site survey to assess possible yield.
