Two site assessors have been recruited. Gerd Born, originally from South Africa, built his career in sales before setting up home in the UK where he worked his way up from car showrooms to selling automotive related products.
Wajjid Mahmood, a seasoned sales professional, worked in the travel industry and financial sales. Two telesales staff, Ben Mackrill and Anthony Ellis, join them and general manager Richard Moody is actively recruiting for a third.
Windcrop launched into Yorkshire in September. The firm have a strong and successful reputation in the East of the UK which it hopes to replicate in Yorkshire.
Mr Moody said: “I’m overseeing a recruitment drive that is expected to deliver rapid expansion in the next six months. Small wind energy is a great offer for farmers and private landowners. We’ve already had more than 25 orders from the region. It basically enables the landowner to generate ‘green’ electricity for free. With rising energy bills and talks of an energy crisis looming, generating your own power can make a big difference for the future of small landowners.”
Windcrop manages the planning application process and installs the free turbines as part of a Government backed scheme to help landowners use green energy to cut down on both energy bills and carbon emissions. The surplus energy is then fed back to the national grid.
Owing to their small scale, the 15m high turbines are unobtrusive and the impact on the environment is minimal.
Mr Moody said: “The whole renewable energy sector and especially small wind energy is expanding as more people realise the cost and environmental benefits.”
