About Iskra
Iskra is a supplier of renewable energy systems. It makes an advanced wind turbine (AT5-1) for the ‘small wind’ market - for example, for homes, schools, and farms (as opposed to the ‘big wind’ market of commercial wind farms or roof mounted turbines - micro wind).

The AT5-1 advanced wind turbine can produce 9000KWh (units) per year at an average wind speed of 11 miles per hour, enough to provide electricity for two average homes.

Iskra’s turbines use sophisticated technology and design to make them the most efficient and cost-effective small wind turbines on the market. Iskra spent five years on research and development before manufacturing its first wind turbine in 2004. The turbines are manufactured in the UK with all parts sourced in the UK.
