UK’S Top Small Wind Manufacturer Backs Wind Energy Charter

April 09, 2012

Gaia-Wind, the Glasgow based small turbine manufacturer, backed RenewableUKs' Wind Energy Charter launched on 4th April.

CEO Johnnie Andringa said:
“The principles of the charter coincide neatly with the aims of Gaia- Wind. We have invested strongly in the UK economy creating jobs in our worldwide manufacturing and distribution hub in Glasgow and supporting many more in our supply and service chain.

“The farm scale turbines we manufacture are most often individual turbines for people trying to reduce their energy costs and to make a contribution against climate change. The renewable energy generated is clean, safe and affordable. It is also, importantly: distributed, small scale, domestic, and community based.”

The three principles that form the basis of the Charter are:
•    To invest in the future prosperity and energy security of the UK
•    To provide financial security for families by creating tens of thousands of long-term jobs
•    To provide clean, safe and affordable energy for the UK today and for future generations
