  • Evaluate your proposed turbine site

    • Your Endurance Consultant will review your proposed turbine site to gather the following information:
      • Site proximity to electrical service - within 500 ft recommended
      • Site suitability for tower installation - is there sufficient space to install and erect an Endurance wind turbine
      • Site suitability for steady wind flow - is the site free of obstructions that would interrupt wind flow and reduce the productivity of the Endurance wind turbine
  • Secure Permits, Interconnection Agreements and Incentives

    • Your Endurance Consultant will work with you to prepare the paper work required to secure:
      • Any local permits and variances required by your local municipality for the installation and operation of your Endurance Wind Turbine
