Have you been wondering how to start a wind farm? If you’re a landowner wanting to start a project from scratch, this ultimate overview will get you started on the right foot.

So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and set up a commercial renewable energy project on your land. But if you feel as though you have no idea where to start, you’re not alone. We’ve created the ultimate guide on how to start a wind farm that will give you everything you need to get started.

We’ll cover the steps required to start a wind farm alongside a developer. With our help, you’ll have all the context you need to feel confident starting a new project. But we’ll also be speaking directly to landowners who want to fund projects themselves as self-developers. Essentially, we’re covering every base to get you all the information you need in one place.

Now let’s figure out how to start a wind farm from the very beginning to get you prepped and primed for success.

During my time working with the UK’s largest renewable energy developer and site operator as an accountant, I saw it all. From early contracts and option agreements to construction processes and decommissioning, there’s a lot of information to take on for any new project.

But I’ve never personally felt that there was much accessible information out there on how to start a wind farm from a landowner’s point of view. More to the point, I’ve repeatedly found that landowners miss small things at the lease stage. These small oversights usually led to lost income, missed opportunities, and sour relationships between landowners and site operators. 

In short, things that we’d hope to avoid.

So, to try and get landowners the best possible deal, I’ve put together the ultimate guide to starting a wind farm. With all the information you need about option agreements, tackling leases, construction phases, and managing the project – it’s all here. And in my experience, it’s always best to feel confident and prepared when navigating a new renewable energy project.

The first thing you might be asking yourself if you’re figuring out how to start a wind farm is this:

Are wind farms worth it for landowners?”

Our answer is a resounding YES.

Not only do turbines provide a clean source of domestic energy, but they’re an excellent way for landowners to earn additional income. Plus, most wind farms will generate significant profits once the project has recouped its initial investment. Another thing you should consider is that most of the liability for a project lies entirely with the developer. So, most landowners can sit back and rely on a steady stream of near-passive income for the life of the project.

The first thing wind farm developers will need to do is understand the potential capacity of the land they’re working with. So, making sure you have the land required for a wind farm is a crucial first step for landowners.

The average land required for a wind turbine can be anything from 25-40 acres. And that’s just for a single turbine. So, you can expect large wind farms with huge capacities to require around 10 times this amount of land. As an average rule, a typical wind farm requires around 2 to 40 acres per megawatt of capacity. For that reason, it’s worth weighing up how much land you can offer before developers approach you.

The best land for wind farms will have a wind speed of around 11.6 knots per second but anything more than this will increase your profits. But it’s worth noting that any land used for a wind farm will need to have speeds of at least 6 metres per second (m/s). Luckily for landowners, average wind speeds in the UK have remained relatively stable over the years (settling at around 7.9 knots in 2021).

In certain years, it has risen as high as 9.4 knots. However, developers will be looking at something between 9.4 and 11.6 knots per second for the most reliable yields.

Being too close to nearby properties is a major reason for local authorities denying planning permission. So, you’ll want to make sure that no part of the turbine blades on your land will exceed 11.1 metres. You’ll also need to remember that a turbine’s height plus 10% is the distance that the structure will need to be from property boundaries. If you don’t have enough land to work with, getting a commercial wind project on your property is going to be difficult.

Speaking of planning permission, having local support is crucial for getting any project off the ground. For one thing, local authorities need to signpost appropriate land for wind development (which not many have done). But it’s also worth mentioning that some people simply don’t want turbines near them.

This isn’t as much of a problem these days as 74% of the country backs onshore wind. However, many people still believe that having turbines nearby will devalue their land. So, it’s certainly something to discuss with your neighbours before diving in and talking with developers.

This may be something that doesn’t cross your mind when starting a wind farm. But wind turbines are incredibly heavy and soft soils simply won’t be able to support the weight of the average structure.

The most popular soil types for wind farms are currently as follows:

  • Alluvial soils
  • Calcareous soils
  • Ground-water gleys

These soil types have a much better chance of withstanding the weight of turbines throughout a 20-25-year period. Just so you’re aware, that’s the usable life of your average wind farm. Quality of land isn’t necessarily something that will make or break a potential wind farm – but it’s worth thinking about.

If your land is suitable for wind development, developers will probably try to secure access to the site. The first thing that a developer will do is weigh up the economic incentives that come with securing your land. This usually involves a feasibility study that assesses your property’s potential when it comes to wind speeds. A developer will typically compare your site against others in the area and check for existing grid connection (which can be highly beneficial).

If your site gets the green light through a preliminary desktop study, a developer may reach out with an option agreement. Don’t worry, we’ll get to this in just a moment.

Before landowners and developers sign an option agreement, developers will get the lay of the land on planning permission. If achieving this is virtually impossible because of issues with local authorities, you won’t have much luck getting projects on your land. However, if developers are relatively certain that the local authority will grant planning permission, they’ll pose an option agreement.

One of the major things we tend to talk about when someone asks us how to start a wind farm is an option agreement. Sometimes called a lease option, landowners sign these to grant exclusive rights to a specific developer to use a plot of land. The agreements are legally binding and state holding terms, upfront fees, and a few other financial considerations for the project.

When it comes to wind farms, these agreements will give a developer the right to capture the wind resources on the landowner’s property. The developer will usually draw up an option agreement on a per-acre basis and it’s usually accompanied by a holding payment. The agreement doesn’t necessarily mean that a wind farm will be built. It just ensures that the landowner reserves the land for the developer who has expressed an interest in building a project on that land. They are usually set up for a determined period (like 5 years). 

After this period expires, the developer may wish to extend the option agreement or release the land. Before landowners sign an option agreement, they must understand the commitment required. As the option agreement will tie up the land for several years, it restricts what the landowner can do with their land.  So, they won’t be able to build any additional farming equipment that may encroach on turbine space (for example!). For this reason, it’s super important to be fully aware of what to look for when signing any option agreements.

We’ve written an entire rundown on the ins and outs of option agreements that’s well worth checking out before signing. But essentially, option agreements prevent landowners from going to another developer if they offer a better price. And as wind projects are quite speculative when they’re starting out, developers need to protect their initial investments.

As we mentioned previously, they’ll be carrying out everything from feasibility to initial funding during the option agreement phase. So, not having a legal “reserve” over the land can be a very expensive mistake for developers. Plus, the option agreement gives you as a landowner security that a wind project is actively being sought for your land.

Once the agreement is signed, a landowner’s role is relatively passive until the project is up and running. And who doesn’t want to get extra income for bookmarking their land for a developer?

One of the major steps that comes with starting a wind farm is accessing the capital required to bring it to life. Now, this isn’t something that landowners will be involved in unless they’re self-financing a project as a landowner-developer. But you might be interested to know what goes on behind the scenes during this stage.

If you’re figuring out how to start a wind farm, it’s worth understanding that wind project financing usually takes 4 forms:

  • Self-financing
  • Leasing the site post-construction
  • Bank financing
  • External investment

None of these methods are necessarily better than the next, but it all depends on a developer’s access to capital.

If a developer (or landowner-developer) has sufficient funds, they might look into self-financing. This isn’t very common as the upfront capital required for a wind farm is huge (upwards of £3.13 million to build for a single 3.5MW turbine).

Although the respective returns can also be huge at up to £7,100,000 per year, not many developers can pull these huge sums from their own pockets. Developers also need to consider planning permission costs, construction costs, and the costs associated with grid connection. So, most choose to go with options 2, 3, or 4.

If you’re interested in being a landowner-developer but don’t want to run your project, leasing the site is a great option. This essentially involves passing the project over to a wind farm management company. They will take care of the day-to-day running and management of the project for a fee. Not only will this offer solid income as your project recoups its initial investment, but it also takes the day-to-day work out of the equation. So, if you’re wondering how to start a wind farm without being directly involved post-construction, this is an excellent option.

Bank financing is the most popular option for landowner-developers and regular developers wondering how to start a wind farm. This is largely because the finance is coming from a trusted source and is unlikely to fall through during the construction phase. Several UK banks offer top-tier investments for new renewable energy projects. You’ll want to do plenty of research before settling on a finance plan with a high street bank. But most offer quality support during the construction and operational phase of a project as the funds are repaid.

The final financing option that we’ll cover is investment from high-net-worth individuals and crowdfunding. One-on-one investing usually requires help from individuals who will negotiate a share of the project’s profits throughout its lifetime. So, they’ll provide a generous upfront investment that you’ll gradually repay through a profit-share system. This can be slightly riskier than bank financing as there’s a small chance that your investors could face bankruptcy. But as this is relatively unlikely, it’s a decent option if landowner-developers don’t want to be tied to a bank loan.

Overall, wind farms can be an excellent investment that’s worth taking out substantial finance for. However, it’s extremely important to follow a few top tips to make sure your investment is secure as your project progresses.

After an option agreement has been signed, developers will usually apply for Grid connection ASAP. This is largely because this can take a long time to achieve (up to 10 years in certain regions). But it’s also because being connected to the Grid is a crucial step in getting a wind farm up and running. And that’s why having prior Grid connection can make your site incredibly appealing to developers.

The National Grid is an extensive network split into 14 regions that run the length and breadth of the UK. These 14 “local grids” are responsible for distributing the energy transmitted from the National Grid.

And if you’re wondering why the Grid is so important, it’s because it transports energy produced by your project to customers. Without a viable end-point, your energy won’t command much of a price on the market.

Any kind of work on the Grid will fall into 2 categories: contestable and non-contestable works. Contestable works are essentially carried out by an independent operator and don’t interfere with any of the 14 Grid points. If it’s non-contestable works, these relate to high-risk areas that may affect the overall functioning of the Grid. So, these works should be carried out by dedicated agents of the National Grid. This isn’t something landowners will need to worry about, but it’s worth bearing in mind.

These days, Grid application involves a 2-step process that consists of an initial offer and a follow-up offer. The initial offer will be given by Grid representatives if your site is deemed safe for connection. Any follow-up offer will come once a developer has agreed to the terms of step 1. After this point, contractors will lay cables and manage the connection.

If you’re not planning to use the energy produced on your site to run an associated business, you’ll probably need an off-taker. An off-taker is a personal or business that buys energy produced from a project. So, companies like EDF Energy, Octopus, and the like.

The market is relatively competitive and the off-takers are responsible for purchasing and selling the energy. As a landowner, you won’t have much of an association with off-takers unless you’re self-developing.

If you’re not planning to self-develop a site,  you’ll probably want to know what to look for in a developer. Now, before you consider self-financing, it’s worth considering that you’ll be taking on the entire financial risk of the project if you do this. If you work with a developer, you’ll usually receive a prearranged payment and be relatively hands-off.

Whether you want to be deeply involved in the project depends entirely on your goals and your access to capital. So, consider your approach carefully before arriving at a decision to self-develop or engage with a developer.

  • Carry out feasibility studies
  • Handle option agreements
  • Secure Grid connection
  • Purchase or lease land
  • Install turbines and monitoring equipment
  • Secure adequate financing for the project
  • Keep the project running smoothly alongside a site operator

So, you’ve signed an option agreement, done market research on your land, and your project has the go-ahead. Now that you have ticked these tasks off, it’s time to draw up a lease that outlines how rent will be paid for leasing your land. But that’s not all you need to think about as a landowner.

The lease should also take into consideration:

  • The decommissioning of the project
  • How the roads surrounding the wind farm will be maintained
  • Appropriate dispute resolution steps
  • The possibility of a mid-lease option
  • Time scales for the project including completion dates and expected lifespan

Before diving in headfirst, we always encourage landowners to consider how their lease is written. Not only will this important document protect you, but even the way it’s written could make all the difference to the success of a project. In fact we have seen poorly worded lease agreements reduce landowner payments by 50%. So, we recommend that you don’t underestimate the value of consulting a team of experts when drawing up your lease.

Landowners usually have certain payment arrangements that they want to abide by. For example, whether they favour fixed rent or another agreement, it needs to be very clear in the lease agreement. Equally, they may have specific elements that they included in their lease. Depending on the lease’s wording, this may impact the income that the developer can generate from the site.

Another important thing to know is whether a landowner has opted out of the Landlord Tenant Act of 1954. This could potentially limit a site operator’s ability to stay on the land once a lease expires or make it difficult for a landlord to end the project.

A professional giving advice about mid lease options

If you’re not sure what a mid-lease option is, it’s essentially the chance to renegotiate your terms during your lease period. This is often done when your rental income doesn’t align with current market rates anymore.

By working a mid-lease option into your terms, you can renegotiate without any pushback from your site operator. To get the best terms possible here, we highly recommend consulting a team of experts. They’ll be able to help you get the wording just right to secure a productive discussion mid-lease.

This might sound like a no-brainer. But it’s extremely important to work clear guidelines on management and decommissioning into a lease.

Unless you’re fronting the cost of your project, the costs of monitoring and management should fall to your developer and site operator. By discussing the exact maintenance that the site requires during its lifetime (and who’s responsible for its upkeep), you’ll avoid several logistical headaches.

When it comes to decommissioning, the same rules apply. You’ll have the choice to extend your wind farm project if you wish. But it’s incredibly important to work decommissioning responsibilities into your lease clearly before signing. This is because it’s the landowner’s legal responsibility to restore the land to its original state after a project.

Now, this very rarely falls to the landowner in most projects we’ve seen. But if decommissioning terms aren’t clearly stated in your lease, you could leave yourself vulnerable once the project is no longer viable.

Now that you’ve got an appropriate lease together, it’s time to get the turbines up and running. The installation of wind turbines involves everything from building access roads to constructing the turbines themselves.

This turbine-building process usually consists of:

  • Laying the foundations
  • Constructing the tower
  • Adding the nacelles
  • Fixing the blades
  • Testing and commissioning the turbines
  • The process from option agreement and lease to getting the turbines constructed can take a while (and that’s largely down to planning permission).

But once the construction teams are on-site, the process ticks along nicely. It’s worth noting that the laying of access roads and foundations may impact your day-to-day activities slightly. However, we’ve always found that the general impact on landowners while turbines are built is minimal.

If you’re worried about any part of the process, it’s worth checking in with your developer for step-by-step information. We can say that heavy foundations will be laid before towers are constructed, nacelles are added, and blades are fixed. But as turbine size varies from project to project, your developer should be the first port of call.

The process of installing wind turbines generally depends on their size and structure. Smaller turbines naturally take less time to construct as there are fewer moving parts and less construction equipment is required. From our research, the average commercial turbine takes approximately 3 years and 8 months to fully construct. And that’s from the date a planning application is submitted to the date the project is fully operational.

Once your wind farm is up and running, your developer and site operator will perform regular maintenance checks.

Before we go any further, we thought we’d mention that it’s crucial to have your payment arrangement and lease fully outlined before this point. It probably goes without saying, but this will give you the capacity to fully monitor your payments over time.

If you don’t have a clear payment arrangement in place, checking the accuracy of your payments will be far more difficult. And as disputes can cost as much as £300,000 on the higher end, you don’t want to risk a dispute at any point. To avoid that, get your payment arrangement in order and have a great conflict resolution clause in place.

Your site operator will be responsible for keeping the site running, planning maintenance checks, and keeping the turbines in good condition. It’s worth mentioning that these checks usually take place when the turbines are harnessing less energy. This is to make sure the site isn’t losing valuable potential income during high-yield periods. However, it’s worth noting that the site will completely shut down at points during the year for more intense maintenance. These periods will be few and far between, but it could reduce the expected income for that particular period.

If you’re wondering HOW your wind farm will be managed and monitored, it’s down to a collection of sensors.

These are generally:

  • Accelerometers to measure physical acceleration from the turbine blades
  • Temperature sensors to monitor current-carrying components in the turbine
  • Pressure sensors to manage the hydraulic system inside each turbine
  • Rotational speed sensors to measure the general performance of the site

These sensors won’t be monitored by the landlord, but it’s good to know what your site operator is managing during the project’s life.

This isn’t something we’ll touch on in great detail. However, maintaining a good relationship with your site operator is going to make your project much more pleasant.

Not only will a friendly relationship make day-to-day dealings easier for both parties, but it’ll make disputes quicker to manage. If you’re on a first-name basis and are comfortable enough to raise issues quickly, they’ll be resolved productively.And at the end of the day, that’s the best place to be during the management and monitoring phase of a wind farm’s life.

If you’re wondering what you can do to take back more control of your project, let us fill you in.

Carry out regular audits

We regularly see underpayments when carrying out site reviews with SiteView360(™). We’ve found that around 75% of landowners discover calculation areas across the lifetime of their projects. These won’t be deliberate underpayments, but the often-complicated income streams can make tracking quite difficult. It’s also important to remember that energy is linked to the price of gas in the UK.

So, landowners should be receiving higher payments in line with these changes (just something to keep in mind). Although you can try to track payments on your own, it’s worth engaging with our Lumify SiteAdvisor solution. This will give you a specialist overview of your site along with regular ongoing management to keep everything ticking over.

Make sure you know who’s in charge

This might sound redundant, but you must know exactly who is in charge of the project at all times. As the average wind farm project runs for approximately 20-25 years, it may well change hands during this period. And as leases are signed for upwards of 30 years in the current market, it’s almost a sure thing.

To keep yourself aware of any changes, have a regular open dialogue with your site operator about the project. If they’re planning to move on, make sure you meet (and have contact details for) the new site operator.

Don’t be afraid to raise any issues

If you notice that the site isn’t working for any reason, reporting this to a site operator quickly can get things back on track. You won’t be expected to check accelerometers or perform maintenance checks. But if you notice something seriously untoward, the project can get back on track without too much income being lost.

Keep an eye on your lease

The last thing you want is to have your lease end without a formal agreement in place. This usually gives the site operator more rights than you may be willing to sign away – so, keep an eye on key lease dates.

It’s also worth mentioning those useful mid-lease options that we brought up earlier in this post. The mid-lease option allows you to renegotiate terms during a lease, giving you the chance to get more favourable terms. Not only does this give you wiggle room for the next several years, but it keeps your lease in line with current market rates.

If you’re not entirely sure how to negotiate the best possible deal, it’s worth performing a SiteScan(™). This will offer the latest figures on similar sites around the country, giving you hard evidence about the income you should expect. At the end of the day, having this information on hand will put you in a strong position.

If you’re trying to figure out how to start a wind farm, you may have heard about the removal of Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROC). These UK-based subsidies have been boosting wind farm revenues for over 20 years, but they’re set to be removed in 2027.

Although these removals will most affect developers, they CAN impact the income a wind farm makes. So, you’ll want to be aware of what they are and how their removal may affect the profitability of a project. These ROC payments are currently responsible for around 40-50% of what the average wind farm generates. But when these subsidies are eventually removed, the overall payments to landowners will fall. And that’s because the project simply won’t be making as much money. Before you think this is entirely negative, just stick with us.

Energy prices as of 2023 are still at an all-time high, meaning wind farms are receiving far more cash per unit of energy than they typically do. It’s hoped that this boost will balance out the removal of the ROCs for the next 10 years or so. Once the ROCs are removed, the Contracts for Difference scheme will fully replace them. This involves selling energy to the Grid for a fixed price for 10-15 years in exchange for stability. These prices will be lower than current market prices, but they should keep income reliable.

If the price of energy falls above or below the amount listed in the Contracts for Difference scheme, this will be repaid by (or to) the site operator. So, if the average price of energy is £50/unit and the site makes more than this, the site operator pays the difference back. If it makes less, the difference will be made up by the government. And by this standard, the price of energy paid to the site operator will always be set at £50/unit.

Although the thought of losing income from your site isn’t pleasant, many sites will be repowered after ROC removal. Many developers are letting sites live out the ROC period to take advantage of the higher payments. But repowered turbines lead to higher economies of scale per turbine. This is because the old turbines are typically replaced with larger, more powerful, and more efficient modern turbines. Therefore, you need fewer turbines to produce the same amount of energy as you previously did. So, the net impact of the ROC subsidy removal won’t be as significant as you might think.

There will be a reduction in rent once the subsidies are taken away. But developers should understand this and only reduce rent proportionately. If it’s any more than an appropriate dip, you’ll want to discuss this with them as quickly as possible when the time comes.

If you’re figuring out how to start a wind farm, planning permission is something you’ll need to think about. Although some parts of the country are supportive of new wind developments, other parts are actively blocking new projects. In its most basic terms, planning permission is the power given by a local authority to develop land.

It generally exists to keep developments in line with local regulations, but it has become quite restrictive regarding new wind projects (especially in England). Scotland is far more supportive of new projects than any other part of the country. But changes to English legislation in 2015 have actively decimated the number of new wind farms being built. If you’re wondering why planning permission is so difficult to get, stick with us.

The main issue with wind turbine planning permission in the UK revolves around local authorities. For the local authority to green-light a new project, it needs to be in an area that they have identified as suitable for wind development. If this hasn’t happened, it’s unlikely that the authority will grant the project planning permission.

But the issue is, just 20.8% of local authorities have identified suitable areas for wind development. And from our own research, we found that developers built just 16 wind farms between 2016 and 2022 as a result. Compared to the 435 between 2011 and 2015, it’s clear that there has been a huge shift.

Now, there’s a glimmer of hope that current planning rules will be loosened under the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill 2023. However, this simply states that concerns from the local community need to be “appropriately” addressed instead of “fully” addressed (as legislation currently states). This is an improvement on current planning guidelines. But the government needs to take more action to see genuine change.

Once you’ve signed an option agreement as a landowner, the planning process will begin.

This usually involves the following stages:

  • Screening and consultation stage
  • Application surveys and submission to the local authority
  • Application management stage
  • Post-consent and potential appeals stage

We’ve found that very few wind farms make their way to the operational stage. In fact, just 705 out of 2297 total wind farms across the country are currently operational. And out of those 2297 wind farms, 66% are currently in a “grey area.” This includes projects without current approval, projects in the application stage, and projects at the appeal stage.

So, unless you’re in Scotland, it’s worth noting that projects can take a long time to get off the ground. And that’s if they’re granted permission at all. This isn’t to be negative, but it’s worth being aware at the outset that not every potential project will be successful.

To round up this overview on how to start a wind farm, let’s delve into the disadvantages of hosting turbines. Now, most landowners don’t report much physical impact on their land OR disruption to their day-to-day activities. But there are a few things you might want to consider before getting in touch with a developer.

For landowners, one of their main concerns is always going to be the impact on arable land. At the start of a project’s life, developers will build access roads to construct the turbines. These roads (and relevant construction vehicles and materials) will take up space and potentially encroach on arable land.

They won’t be permanent fixtures, but you’ll probably notice a slight impact on your day-to-day operations for a short period. Luckily, the average construction period for a wind farm is between 2 to 6 months. So, the impact should be minimal. In some cases, getting turbines on your land can even benefit crops by mixing the surrounding air and boosting CO2 levels. This is only relevant to landowners with regular farming yields, but it’s worth thinking about.

As we discussed earlier, planning permission woes are a major disadvantage that comes with hosting wind turbines. With planning permission rules potentially loosening over time, this may become less of a concern for landowners. But at present, local authorities need to almost unanimously approve new projects. Equally, you may sign an option agreement for 5 years and need to extend it while you’re waiting for planning permission. So, while it’s not usually a landowner’s responsibility to deal with planning permission, it can certainly affect them.

If we’re discussing the disadvantages of hosting wind turbines, we need to mention the unreliability of the energy itself. Although wind is an excellent resource, seasonal changes can affect the amount of wind a turbine produces.

It’s also worth mentioning that some parts of the country have higher wind speeds and altitudes than others. For example, Scotland’s higher altitudes naturally produce more wind than areas of the English countryside. This isn’t always the case, but it’s worth taking into account before diving in headfirst.

It may not be an issue for most landowners, but some people simply don’t like the appearance of wind turbines. For that reason, we always recommend carefully considering the potential change to your land before erecting turbines.

Before putting any turbines on your land, you’ll need to think about the following things:

  • Any potential lost revenue from arable land
  • Being unable to use the reserved land while it’s listed on an option agreement

These aren’t necessarily dealbreakers, but you’ll need to consider and weigh up the opportunity cost.

If you’re a landowner-developer (AKA: self-developing a site), you’ll need to consider the initial cost of the turbines. Just as a heads-up, you won’t need to worry about this if you’re working with a dedicated developer. But the main thing to think about here is that a single commercial turbine costs a whopping £3.13 million. And that’s hardly pocket change for most landowners

Based on our experience, wind turbines don’t devalue land. 8n most cases, the income received from the turbines significantly adds to the value of the property. Plus, you can’t beat the value of a grid-connected property if you want to make money from your land.
