What are the risks with the Croft West Wind Turbine project?

  • As with all projects, the manager has to choose a competent, reliable EPC (Energy, Procurement and Construction) contractor. A risk is that the EPC contractor does not perform to contract or expectations.
  • If the wind speed levels are lower than expected the forecasted returns might be lower.
  • Insurances, warranties and manufacturer guarantees are in place to de-risk the investment as much as possible.
  • The Financial Services Compensation Scheme does not protect members’ funds.
