Energee and WEST, in conjunction with their partners and contractors, have collectively installed more than one third of Scotland’s micro-wind turbines across the Highlands and Islands in 2013.
Energee managing director John Daniel Peteranna says he and WEST founder Angus MacDonald “are both excited about the merging of resources. The combination of additional expertise will be a great advantage to the customers of both companies; this buyout will be of significant benefit to both current and also future customers.”
Macdonald adds: “I would just like to say thank you to all my customers for your support over the years and assure you that together we will continue to provide a high level of support that you have come to expect. WEST’s warranties with the wind turbines currently in operation will now be transferred and supported directly by Energee.”
Energee was founded in 2008 by electrical engineer John Daniel Peteranna to compete in the renewable energy solutions marketplace. Energee, which is based in Uist with offices in Stornoway and Wick, provides coverage to the whole of Scotland.
