Today VG has over 60 directly employed staff: planners, environmental consultants, architects, experienced wind turbine engineers, electrical engineers, and project managers along with knowledgeable sales staff.
In 2008 the founders of VG Energy, were looking to install a small wind turbine on each of their farms and found that no existing company could offer them the level of expertise and service that would normally be expected when purchasing agricultural equipment. They realised quickly that there was a huge gap in the market for a company selling wind turbines under a model similar to a reputable agricultural machinery dealership, specifically including the important aftersales service. This was how VG Energy was born.
VG Energy provides a full turnkey solution for any renewable project whether wind, solar or biomass. We have sold over 300 wind turbines and are established as the UK market leader for selling and installing wind turbines ranging from 6kW to 2.0MW in size. VG offers a range of tailored Wind Turbine, Biomass and Solar solutions to suit the needs of land owners and businesses that enable them to reduce electricity bills, generate a guaranteed income stream, reduce their carbon footprint or even rent their land and install our own turbines. VG offer the complete package including sales, consultation, planning, installation, commissioning, servicing and maintenance which are all carried out by in-house staff.
The wind turbines that VG Energy promote are class leading. To ensure this VG's engineers have performed due-diligence on numerous wind turbine manufacturers around the world including travelling to their manufacturing facilities to inspect their capability and their quality systems. This ensures that the turbines VG supplies are of the highest quality possible and have the best commercial backing from the manufacturers. VG's engineers have designed and built wind turbines in the past and have the necessary knowledge to comment on the design, manufacturing process, and the reliability of all types and sizes of wind turbines.
